Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts sitting out band's US tour

Watts turned 80 in June and is “unlikely to be available” for the band’s upcoming “No Filter” tour of U.S. stadiums after undergoing an unspecified medical procedure, according to a Stones spokesperson. 

“Charlie has had a procedure which was completely successful, but his doctors this week concluded that he now needs proper rest and recuperation,” the spokesperson said, according to Variety. “With rehearsals starting in a couple of weeks it’s very disappointing to say the least, but it’s also fair to say no one saw this coming.”
