The 'bed that Keith lies on' has turned 70!! Bet he never thought he'd make it this far.

Can't recall him ever receiving a Knighthood though. When did this happen?

A fabulous life and career ... blues, RnR, RnB, country, pop, disco, jazz ... plus album cover design, the Bird book, a long, happy marriage, a mountain of $$ and is still in rude health playing the music he loves with great musos at age 70!

A wonderful (and enviable) way to spend a life.

Many had the chances but made bad decisions and/or were unlucky. As with his drumming style, Charlie found the sweet spot almost all the time.

I believe Sir Mick refered to him as "my drummer"Sir Charlie took exception to this,punched Sir Mick in the face and said" I'm not your drummer...you're my singer"Gotta love that guy.
