Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has not quit the legendary rock’n’roll band, his spokesman has told Uncut.co.uk this afternoon (September 2).

Claims made earlier today on Australian website undercover.com.au that Charlie Watts had quit The Rolling Stones were posted online at 10am (GMT), quoting an unnamed source in the band’s inner circle who said the drummer “will never record or tour with the band again.”

The story was subsequently picked up by a number of online news services before a statement was released to Uncut.co.uk at 5pm (GMT) by the band’s UK spokesperson.

The statement reads: “Contrary to a fabricated story that ran this morning on a small music web site in Australia, drummer Charlie Watts has not left The Rolling Stones.”

Charlie Watts joined the band in 1963.

The rumour comes a few days after the news that the police are planning to re-examine the death of the Stones’ former guitarist Brian Jones, who drowned in 1969.
