Members of the Rolling Stones have shared tributes to their legendary drummer Charlie Watts, who died Tuesday at the age of 80.
Band frontman Mick Jagger posted a photo on Twitter of a smiling Watts seated behind a drum kit.
Lead guitarist Keith Richards shared a picture of a drum set with a hanging sign reading “Closed.”
Guitarist Ronnie Wood posted a photo of himself and his late bandmate captioned “I love you my fellow Gemini I will dearly miss you you are the best.”
On the Rollingstones.com website, only a black-silhouetted portrait of Watts appears.
Watts’ publicist announced Tuesday that the musician died in a London hospital surrounded by his family. He had been married to his wife Shirley for 57 years.
