LMA Charlie Watts@80 !!!

 Happy Birthday Charlie Watts ! The legendary Rolling Stones drummer is 80 today !  He was always the quite one, the cool one, the mysterious one, in between the excess and the beef of the Glimmer Twins !

Also yesterday was Ronnie Wood's Birthday ! He got 74 ! The Young One :)

Listened a few days back to a song from 1968 I didi not know, Child of the Moon, a B side on the single of Jumpin' Jack Flash and saw a great and weird -psychedelic- short film (video)  of the song by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg (Rock 'n roll Circus).
