A heads up that you're going to read a fair amount about Charlie Watts over the course of this review of what is the most monumental Canadian Rolling Stones moment in the band's history.
The late Watts was, as Mick Jagger jokes at one point during this live record, "a jazz drummer who's only doing it for the money; he's really a jazz drummer. " Despite the attention paid to Jagger and Keith Richards, Watts was the quiet force behind the Stones' driving swing and power as a band.
