Charlie Watts Happy for Rolling Stones to Retire?
Charlie Watts has been speaking to the Australian (via Classic Rock) about the future of the Rolling Stones after their current world tour.

As the 72 year old drummer notes, the band's age has affected the way they approach touring:

"This is short compared to what we've done before - but it needs to be, I think, at our tender age."

"The thought of doing 50 shows, which was normal at one time for us to sign off on, that's quite daunting. Now we're doing that in little bits."

Watts also stated that he would be content if the current run of shows was the Rolling Stones' last:

"If we don't do any more I'll be quite happy with that."

The Stones have been on the road since 2012, when they played a series of shows to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Their schedule for this year includes concerts in the UAE, Japan, Macau and China alongside six Australian dates and one in New Zealand.
