Mick Jagger’s heartbreaking post welcomed Charlie Watts to the band days before his death | Celebrity news | Showbiz and TV

Rolling Stones head Mick Jagger wrote a touching Instagram post welcoming his band member Charlie Watts to the group just days before his death at the age of 80. A friend has returned to the band after recovering from an operation he underwent earlier this month, which saw him withdraw from the band’s US tour.

Given his 2.1 million followers, Mick shared how excited he was to be back performing with the drummer.

He wrote: “We really look forward to welcoming Charlie back once he’s fully recovered.

“Thank you to our friend Steve Jordan for stepping in, so we can bring you all the shows this fall,” Mick added.

Rock band guitarist Keith Richards also wrote an emotional blog post, admitting that the news of Charlie’s withdrawal from the tour was a “blow.”

He wrote: “This has been a blow to all of us, to say the least, and we all hope Charlie recovers quickly and sees him ASAP.

“Thank you Steve Jordan for joining us in the meantime,” he ended the post.

This news comes after the rock star pulled out of The Rolling Stones’ No Filter tour due to health issues.

Charlie underwent surgery and quit the tour on the advice of his doctors, revealing at the time that his recovery “will take some time”.

In her first shot, she appeared standing in front of her godfather Charlie, while he was playing drums in the background.

Georgia captioned the post: “Starting with my amazing godfather Charlie in the back, swipe up for the coolest touring sisters in the entire world!” (sic)

But today, Bernard Doherty, London drummer’s publicist, confirmed the sad news of his death in a statement to the Palestinian News Agency.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Charlie Watts,” the statement read.
