Sir Mick recently said he found it ‘strange’ to perform without Charlie Watts, who died on 24 August at the age of 80.

The Rolling Stones kicked off their North American tour earlier this month, but sympathy for the Devil hitmaker admitted that he and his bandmates still aren’t used to being on stage without a late drummer.

Mick told SiriusXM DJ Howard Stern: ‘Every time we get together and rehearse, we say, “Oh, Charlie will say this, then he will do that.”

An official cause of death has not been revealed, but he suffered several health problems in recent years, including a diagnosis of throat cancer in 2004.

‘We did so many shows with him and so many tours and so many recording sessions, it’s weird without him. And he said, when he was sick, he said, “You just have to go ahead and do this tour. Don’t stop because of me.” so did we.’

The Paint It Black singer also described Charlie as the “heartbeat” of the group.

He said: ‘Charlie was the heartthrob for the band, and also a very stable personality. He didn’t have to worry. He was a very reliable person, not a diva – that’s the last thing you need in a drummer.’

And it’s not only on stage that Mick remembers Charlie because they had so many other shared passions.

He said: ‘I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humor and we were also outside the band, we hang out a lot and had interesting times…

‘We loved sports, we went to football, we went to cricket games, and we had other interests besides music.’
