So Yahoo had an article about the Stones and their upcoming 60th anniversary tour of 14 days. It's mostly an interview about Mick
and his health regimen, and talks about Charlie a bit and how he was always last out to the curtain bow:

“I don’t really expect him to be there any more if I turn round during a show,” Jagger says. “But I do think about him. Not only during
rehearsals or on stage, but in other ways too. I would have phoned him up and talked about last night’s Arsenal game because he
supported Tottenham and I’m Arsenal. I miss him as a player and as a friend. In the show, when we come to the front and bow at
the end, there’s no Charlie. He’d always be the last one down. I’d go: ‘Come on, what have you got to do?’
He’d be fiddling with his sticks because he always had to have them in a row before he’d get off the seat.”

Still hard to believe and accept Charlie is no longer with us... His 81st birthday would've been next Thursday, June 2nd... :(

I wish they'd get the facts straight in these articles. Ron Wood was invited to join the Stones in 1976. However, he wasn't made a "full band member" until Bill Wyman left in 1993. There's a world of a difference between "being in a band" and being a "full band member" i.e. partner.

But it's a nice article.

I remember reading a quote from Ron Wood saying he became a full band member just in time when the real money started coming in.
