I only really liked these six selections:

Brown Sugar
Bitch
Gimme Shelter
Love in Vain
Midnight Rambler
Jumpin' Jack Flash

Oh well. At the time though I was just delighted to have finally seen the Stones to whose music I'd been grooving for over seven years!

"Love in Vain" is probably the best blues song in their catalogue. Mick really sang that beautifully live.

As a drummer, I am not a fan of drum solos. With exception of Bonham, Rich, Peart, Watts, Mitchell, Carr, Criss, Singer and Ward. Those drummers can make a drum solo magical.
No love for Kieth Moon? He was an uncontrollable force of nature.

I give Charlie a big kudos for being a Major drummer in the rock world.
BUT...and I know that it pits various music styles against each other which really is not fair BUT...
If you put good old Charlie against any prominent thrash or death metal drummer against each other the metal guy would win hands down.
And like I said,it's style against style. So all you rock guys, check hardcore metal bands and prepare to be blown away.

Here is one example that is from a great but pretty standard metal band. FFDP!!!! MO FO

Totally FAVE version of this classic song.

Why? Does flailing about more energetically automatically imply greater skill? And more importantly does it automatically make a musical piece sound better? And sounding good is what music is all about.

In fact, additional beats from more energetic (shall we say) drumming actually detract from a piece of music. That's why there's a lot to be said for playing no more beats than a song requires.

Moreover Charlie Watts is also the master par excellence of economy in motion, i.e. delivering the required beat with as little superfluous motion as possible.
