In the early 60’s in the UK, kids were really getting into Blues music. One of the bands that would draw people from many miles around was Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated. It was one of those bands that all the upcoming musician wanted to either jam with or be in.
On Jan. 9, 1963, one of the bands musicians decided it was time for him to move on and left the band. Many thought he was crazy for leaving such a big and popular act.
He was the bands drummer. His name was Charlie Watts. He left one of the most popular bands in the UK to take his chances with a new band. The new band was The Rolling Stones.
When Charlie left Blues Incorporated, he was replaced by Ginger Baker
55 years ago today. Charlie, we think you made the right move!
