    thanks for the tip

    1 hour 53 min into the rewind

    There have been a few "I've got a little something in my eye" moments this last couple of years, far, far, too many

    I think Charlie gave the best summary of his own Stones career: 1 year of playing the drums, 50 years of sitting around waiting...... Pretty good year though!
