Something I have been pondering re Charlie W. All this adulation. He wore suits – like so many jazz drummers did. He held the sticks – like a jazz drummer. And then I was reading a review of one of his jazz records and the (jazz) reviewer described him as drummer in the Rolling Stones and an “ok” jazz drummer. So was he “that” good a drummer in absolute terms? Was this reviewer guy just being a snob or is CW lauded coz he was in the rock field where 4/4 is king and a lot of drummers arent very good?
