Time Is On My Side

Last week it was Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday and today it’s the turn of Charlie Watts. Here are four covers of songs by the Stones where Charlie’s drumming was to the fore on the originals. Next up is Murray Lachlan Young’s paranoid though hilarious tale about an encounter with Charlie and his band. He’s followed by the Stones’ version of Barrett Strong’s well-known song before a crowd called Antihero finish up with their tune about the even more renowned logo of Jagger’s lips that has adorned tons of t-shirts down the years. Happy birthday, Charlie
