Iconic Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts died at the age of 80 on August 24, 2021. According to the New York Post, his funeral took place in the second week of September. What if the other members of the Rolling Stones group were deprived of attending because of the restrictions related to the pandemic.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood were in Boston, USA, for their friend’s funeral. They were doing rehearsals for their next American tour. The funeral took place in a small group in Devon, UK. Due to travel restrictions linked to the Covid pandemic, the group was unable to return to the United Kingdom to bid the drummer a final farewell. It was however announced that a second tribute would be paid to him “later in the year, in the United Kingdom”.
