Charlie Watts (1941-2021)

The Rolling Stones drummer since 1963 passed away this week at the age of 80.

Despite being steeped in the blues, the Rolling Stones haven't made many appearances on Fog City Blues. But with the passing of one of their longest-serving members, we give the Stones' drummer some in the second hour of this week's broadcast, Saturday, August 28 at 8 pm.
