“Ever since Charlie’s gone it’s different – he’s number four, he’s missing,” Keith Richards said.
“Of course he’s missed, incredibly. But thanks to Charlie Watts we have Steve Jordan – his recommendation, that if anything should happen to him, he’s your man.”

The band have teased details of the album over the past week, with Jagger sharing a photograph of him and livestream host Fallon in The Old Ship pub next door reading the Hackney Gazette.
Ronnie also confirmed that Lady Gaga would feature on the track 'Sweet Sound Of Heaven'.
When asked why there was a seven-year gap between Blue & Lonesome and the forthcoming answer, Mick said:
"We've been on the road most of the time, maybe we were a bit too lazy, but then we said, 'let's put a deadline'."
