Charlie Watts Loves Eminem

SIR MICK JAGGER has exposed his ROLLING STONES bandmate CHARLIE WATTS as a huge EMINEM fan.

British rocker Jagger, 62, has revealed that Watts adores the musical works of the controversial rapper - and he's particularly fond of his latest album ENCORE.

Jagger tells Maxim magazine, "You know who likes the new Eminem record? Charlie Watts. I haven't even heard it, but Charlie keeps telling me I have to listen to it. There's just so much music out there."

And Jagger also has a few surprises in his own playlist: "I like a real mixture. I download everything from classical music to country to folk music to New Age music to young British bands to blues bands. I listen to absolutely everything.

"I just listened to the new MISSY ELLIOTT album, and I'm not sure if it's that great. I'll have to give it a few more goes. I've been playing a lot of this new English band the 22-20s. They're really good, but they do sound a lot like the Stones."
