Charlie Watts Net Worth: Charlie Watts is an English drummer who has a net worth of $170 million dollars. A musician, composer, producer, and horseman, Charlie Watts is most recognized as the drummer for The Rolling Stones. He is also an accomplished jazz musician and plays with the group, The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie, which also features Axel Zwingenberger, Ben Waters, and David Green. He was born Charles Robert Watts on June 2, 1941, in Kingsbury, London, England. Thanks to his pre-teen discovery of jazz and blues, Watts recognized his talent for music at an early age. As key musical influences, he listed Miles Davis and John Coltrane who made him emulate his jazz drumming heroes and convert a banjo into a snare drum. Even though Watts first got a job in a London advertising agency in 1960, he also found time to play drums with various groups, including Alexis Korner's "Blues Incorporated". With the Blues, he felt the spirit of London's burgeoning blues scene, which included appearances by such performers as Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton, among others. However, he did quit the blues combo on its rise to fame because he did not want to leave his day job. Once asked to join the Rollin' Stones (later the Rolling Stones), Charlie Watts finally agreed to become its member one year after the formation of the band and played his first gig with them in January 1963. Along with his bandmates Brian Joneswith (guitarist), Mick Jagger (singer), Ian Stewart (pianist), and guitarists Keith Richards and Dick Taylor, he rose to international stardom. Their first #1 hit in the United States was 1965's single 'Satisfaction', after which a string of other successful songs followed like "Paint It Black" and "Ruby Tuesday". By the 1980s, Watts managed to pursue projects outside the Rolling Stones. He returned to his first love, i.e., jazz, as he formed various groups like the Charlie Watts Orchestra, and joined early Rolling Stones member Ian Stewart in the band Rocket 88. As of today, Watts continues to record and play with the Rolling Stones and intends to stay with the band until Mick Jagger or Keith Richards decides to retire. Off stage, Charlie Watts is a devoted family man who married his sweetheart Shirley Ann Shepherd back in 1964 and remained with her ever since. They have only one daughter named Seraphina Watts.
