The world lost one of the biggest figures in music over the past 60 years with the passing of Rolling Stones' drummer Charlie Watts, 80, on Tuesday. Watts has been a part of every show The Stones have played since January 1963, although it was announced earlier this month he wouldn't be playing with the band on its upcoming No Filter Tour.

No cause has been given for his death.
