Rolling Stones still got Watts -- Charlie, that is

September 2, 2009 |  9:43 am

A spokeswoman for the Rolling Stones is flatly refuting an Australian website's report that drummer Charlie Watts has quit the group after 46 years with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. "Contrary to a fabricated story that ran this morning on a small music website in Australia, drummer Charlie Watts has not left the Rolling Stones," spokeswoman Fran Curtis said in a statement issued this morning. The Australian website quoted an anonymous source in its report.
