Default Re: Charlie Watts

I read in some interview, maybe that 90 MD issue, that he started doing it sometime in the 70's because he simply liked how the snare sounded better without a hi-hat note hitting at the same time. A cursory listen to 60's Stones records reveals he clearly played more "normal" then. I do it when I play "Beast of Burden" and "Start Me Up", but not on "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash".
