GALLERY: Charlie Watts Looking Cooler Than You
Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts celebrates his 75th birthday today (June 2nd), and if you follow The Stones on social media, you'll likely have seen the memes and hashtags referencing how Watts is either "Too Cool For Birthdays" or #CharliesTooCoolForTwitter. Here's the thing: What may seem like a clever joke is actually one of rock's greatest truths.
Seriously, in a band that contains Mick Jagger AND Keith Richards, Watts is so obviously the coolest member from his casual aloofness to the way he dresses. Want proof? Take a look at the gallery below. Perhaps you may take away some fashion cues
