Charlie Watts - Charlie Watts Upset At Missing Diamond Jubilee Gig

Rocker Charlie Watts is disappointed the Rolling Stones weren't invited to perform at Queen Elizabeth Ii's Diamond Jubilee concert, insisting he would have been honoured to join the line-up.
The drummer admits he would have loved for the Brown Sugar hitmakers to be included in the special gig being held in the summer (12) to mark the monarch's 60-year reign.
Beatles legend Sir Paul MCCartney, Sir Elton John and Sir Cliff Richard are among the headlining acts, but Watts reveals he and his bandmates are too busy to play the show.
He says, "I'd love to have done the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, because that's a great thing, I think, but I don't think we'd have the time to do it. It'll be a night of the Sirs, won't it, with Paul MCCartney and Elton. Lovely guy, Elton."
Fans still have a chance to see the iconic rock band as Keith Richards recently confirmed they are hoping to tour next year (13).
