    I looked up Slade and they’ve had a bunch lineup changes.

    Yes, it seems you are correct. Those started very late in their career, after I lost track of them. For a long time they were known as the longest running band with no changes in members. I guess I should have looked them up to verify that hadn't changed since then. It has.

    Steve crushed the Aynsley Dunbar era stuff as well.

    He lived a long, respectful, and fruitful life the way many us only dream and this comes from a guy who is not much of a Stones fan.

    Following Charlie's sad passing, assuming the Stones "No Filter" tour proceeds it will be interesting to see whether Steve Jordan plays with them beyond that.

    Yeah. I consider the Stones the most successful band in history. They have performed since 1962 and people still pay to come see them. 59 years of popularity. Charlie is by no means my favorite, but I think we have probably all played Jumpin' Jack Flash and Under My Thumb at one time or another.

    I feel bad like I’m trampling on the dead, but a drummer friend and I went to see Charlie’s jazz band in a small dinner club in New York. It was so bad we left in the middle of the performance, after of course we finished our 2 required drink purchases.

    I'm a firm believer in respecting the dead, and I'm also a firm believer in not sugar coating the past, or making people saints who were not. Not referring to Charlie Watts with that statement.
