Charlie Watts To Quit The Rolling Stones? Not True Say Mick And Keef

Earlier today, according to Aussie website Undercover News, drummer Charlie Watts had purportedly announced plans to quit the Rolling Stones.

The exclusive, quoting an "inner circle source", claims “Charlie Watts has quit the band. He will never record or tour with the band again”.

The article goes on to say that the Stones founding member would be replaced by Charlie Drayton of Keith Richards' Expensive Winos for any future recording or tours.

Now comes news from the Stones themselves, categorically denying the rumors.

In a statement issued today, the band said : ""Contrary to a fabricated story that ran this morning on a small music web site in Australia, drummer Charlie Watts has not left The Rolling Stones".
