"Again. In 1959, four years after a deal left, the city of LA issued an order to tear the towers down. They feared that they were unsafe that they would fall, but local artists and activists rallied. And after some protests, the city agreed to complete a stress test on the towers. You know, it is mind-blowing it has been mind-blowing also for the engineers themselves. The watch towers, they have a foundation that was excavated by him by hand with a sharp only 14 inches into the ground. And despite rodi's unique, handcrafted building techniques. The watts towers passed, they were declared structurally sound. A few years later, in 1961, local artists like Noah periphery, judson Powell, and Sue Welsh got together and cofounded the watts towers arts center. Its headquartered right next to the towers, and their goal was to build partnerships between community leaders and artists. And the towers became kind of icon and rallying point for a vibrant black arts community. They still are. As a monument they been very, very important for the people that live in watts. They're very respected. In 1990, rodeo's towers were declared a National Historic Landmark and a California historic landmark. An it meant that towers were now protected. So in 2010, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art partnered with the city of Los Angeles to conserve the towers because even though they withstood Southern California's earthquakes and years of Santa Ana winds, mother nature had still inflicted a bit of damage. Enter Elizabeth and her team the conservation work began in 2017. When the earthquakes, the Portland cement started to crack in certain areas, water will go into the cracks and reach the armature. The corrosion builds up on the metal and it pushes the mortar away so that cracks will become very big and then more water will get in. So it was, it's like a circle, you know, I never end. So our job was to in very simple world to seal.

I was born in Italy which is a huge percentage of artwork in the world is in Italy. This is Elizabeth perfetti. She grew up in Milan. So, you know, you grew up surrounded by art and I have to say that I never really take it for granted. I was always smarter than you know in front of a work of art. There's a huge role in Milan, the Duomo. And I remember just going to school and going by with the bus every day and every day, I will marvel. It was like, guys, Peter, for the first time. The architectural artwork of Milan caught her eye, but it was something smaller and shinier that really hooked Elizabeth. To I think I was like 13 and I remember being in this particular exhibition in Milan where it was displayed these Roman dolls that were found in an archeological excavation and it was a dull made of ivory. And it was a very tiny, like the size of a little bit smaller than a Barbie doll. Dissolved had all the joints were moving and he had little holes in the ears and should play with these treasure chests with all these jewelry. The exhibit also showcased how the doll was preserved. And Elizabeth became obsessed. From that early age, she knew she wanted to do that kind of work. And as a high schooler, she applied for an art conservation program in Florence. The process to try to get into the school is very competitive and so I kind of drove my family crazy that summer because I wanted to get in and so I was starting so much. The studying paid off, Elizabeth got into the program, and when she graduated, she didn't have to look very far for work. Her home country of Italy supplied her with enough work for a lifetime. From artwork to cathedrals to castles, even private residences in Italy are often old enough to need conservation. But eventually, she was looking for a change. You know, I wanted to learn something new. In 2016, Elizabeth left Italy, and she moved to Los Angeles. She worked at the Getty museum's conservation program and did some building conservation work. But then, in 2018, she moved to lacma. The LA county Museum of Art. And lacma had partnered with the city of LA in an effort to preserve something truly special. The watts towers. Like something out of a fantasy book, these cone shaped towers of angled steel, covered in cement, wire with all of these found materials that shimmer with rainbow hues. And all of those 17 towers were built by one man. Sabado rodeo. I personally went down the rabbit hole when I started to work there. I read probably everything that it told there about him. But there wasn't that much to go on. Because part of the problem is that rodeo wasn't that forthcoming. He never gave the same answer twice. Even his name was slippery. He went by sabado, but then some people called him Simon, sometimes Sam. Here is what we do know. Rodea immigrated from Italy with his brother around 1894. When he was about 15, he didn't have much education, and so he made a living doing physical labor, working at rock quarries, logging, at railroad camps, and as a tile setter. The next big thing we know about rodeo is that he bought property in 1921. As an immigrant, rodeo wasn't allowed to buy just anywhere. But like African Americans at the time, rodeo was able to buy in the watts area, which wasn't actually part of LA yet. We also know that rodeo was looking for something specific. He was very particular about the shape of the land that he wanted for his property. He had to be triangular. 1765 east one O 7 street. It was the last property on a dead end street with railroad tracks nearby. And it was noisy and dusty with frequent passing of trains and street cars. But for odia, it was perfect for what he had in mind. So he found this triangular piece of land in watts and he started to build what today is one of the most amazing landscape that you've ever seen out of the imagination of a person. Any spare moment he had after work on weekends, rodia forged for broken tiles for glass, clay, steel, wire, anything that he could use to build his towers. All by himself. And he called his garden nuestro Pueblo, or our town. Some accounts say that rodea had recently quit drinking. And that these towers were his way to stay away from the bottle. In my mind, this is the work of a man that uses this as some sort of therapy, you know, some sort of redemption if you want to say, sometimes I wonder, you know, if everybody that one food tough times will put is energy into something like this, we will have so many amazing things. It's a good answer. I like that as a sort of general recovery plan for all sorts of things. These towers aren't just visually amazing though, they are also kind of an engineering feat. Rodea had no background in architecture. And he seems to have more or less improvised the plans. He poured a cement foundation and then to build the towers, rodea bent pieces of scrap metal, wrapped mesh around them, and covered them in cement. And the towers they're all wired to each other. They all sort of hold each other up. Rodea completed the 17 towers in 1955. After 33 years of work. And not long after he left. He just handed the deed over to his neighbor. The city of LA became aware of his towers, and rodeo was reportedly tired of haggling over the permits for his creation. So he moved to Northern California. And he never returned to the watts towers.

"So when you walk into this garden, you feel more like you're in a place like Alice in Wonderland or Dr. Seuss. The gardens in question are in watts, a neighborhood in south Los Angeles. And at these gardens, you'll see a few sculptures, some mosaics. But the centerpiece are the watts towers. 17 interconnected towers that shoot up from the ground like inverted ice cream cones. The tallest reaching over a hundred feet. And they really are like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. They've got this dreamy kind of wobbly feel. Like you might see the cat in the hat mischievously climb up one and perch on top. These towers are covered with all kinds of local found materials. So we have glasses. We have ceramic tiles. We have pieces of pottery shells. I mean, you name it. And these materials shimmer in the sunlight. So when you see these sculptures from far away, they almost look like jewels, you know, these huge gigantic tools and they're just incredible. I'm doing the rest, and this is Atlas obscura. A celebration of the world's strange, incredible, and wondrous places. Today we'll be traveling to Los Angeles to learn more about the watts towers. The story of the man who spent 30 years creating them and of the conservator who's working to save and preserve them. After this..

"Is now. Let's go do it. Let's go talk to the brilliant and wise. Mark watts. You know, whenever we were talking on the phone the other day, you told me about something that I thought was really fascinating. And that was that you were trying to identify these three inroads to your father's work, which would basically be and tell me if I'm not describing this. Properly. But someone who perhaps had either no reference of your father's work or had some reference, but we're looking for somewhere how to get to the core, like what are these ways that you could really get in there and kind of get the foundation and what you shared with me as we were talking was beautiful but I'd love if you could share each of those three inroads and then we'll just kind of talk about each one. Sure. You know, it's different now. There was a time when people had only read my father's books and when they came across the audio they were just astonished and these were back in the radio days of the 90s and even going as far back as the 70s. But now it's very different in that most of the people that come to the works have heard a little bit either through social media. They get something or somebody directs them to a YouTube piece and somehow they're introduced to him saying something that is very magical to them. So they usually come with a lot of enthusiasm and but there's kind of a phenomenon about it that I kind of compare it to when Joseph Campbell's works were big. There were people who really understood a lot of his messaging and then there were those kind of follow your bliss people. They got that deep into his stuff. And like this situation, it took an effort to sort of point them to what would resonate on a deeper level..

"Hey Friends what's going on? Welcome to the ASTRO hustle. I am Cory Allen. You are you and here we are together. In this moment of time, hopes if you're doing good today and that you're feeling all right, I've got a very special podcast here today. I just can't wait to share this with you. My guests on the show is Mark watts. Mark is a brilliant thinker, an audio archivist and the son of the great legendary writer Alan watts. In this beautiful podcast, Mark shares what he thinks the inroads are kind of the foundational aspects of his father's work, as well as tons of just great stories of growing up with them, traveling around with him, any shares the beautiful path of his own life and thinking and how his father helped influence that along the way. I know you're gonna love this episode. This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy. Relationships take work. A lot of us will drop anything to help someone we care about. We'll go out of our way to treat other people well, but how often do we give ourselves the same treatment? Self care, taking care of you, making sure that you're feeling good and charged up in positive, is so important. And sometimes I can look like going to the gym, getting a haircut, whatever it might be, but other times it can look like getting therapy. So if you feel like something's interfering with your happiness, then I highly recommend talking to a therapist, at least once just to try it out and see how it feels to be. Better help is online therapy that offers videos, phone, and even live chat sessions with your therapist. So you don't have to see anyone on camera if you don't want to. It's much more affordable than in person therapy, and you can be matched with a therapist under 48 hours..

"Boomer generation of which I am a member. Grew up in an America that was obviously had issues. No society in history has not had issues. I mean, obviously in the 60s, Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, by the end of the 60s, Martin Luther King assassination Robert Kennedy, what year was Robert Kennedy assassinated? Was he in the 60s as well? I think so. I mean, there were a lot of the watts riots. When would the watts riots also 60s? So believe me, they were issues. But the fundamental American society was holding very strong. And then gradually dissolved. Beginning with honoring of parents, don't trust anyone over 30, that was the motto of the dissolution of the traditional America. But gave people on the 2030s, 40s, 50s in the United States peace, for the most part. Not for everybody.

Former Deputy Assistant to President Trump Ja’ron Smith on Meeting People Where They Are

"You came from a background in which you had been told, you know, as you said, you know, Republicans were these awful, terrible, you know, no good people. And yet you were open enough to actually have a questioning mind that you went in. I mean, JC watts outstanding individual, you went in, you saw others, you were working with and growing. I think we're missing that in our younger generation now. There's the partisanship that you and we'll get back to going to The White House in a minute, but that partisanship that you sing growing and I have seen growing over the years. Do you think that's causing more and more people to shy away or just be hardened in their position to where they won't listen to the other side? It's a little bit of both, you know, this guy named Jonathan high UVA professor wrote a book called the righteous mind, and I think that it would have focused on as particularly on politics as that once people attached to a particular ideology depending on how you talk to them about it. Sometimes they can be hard and more if you push back on their individual beliefs. I think that as a party, we need to do a better job of course at communicating with individuals that's outside of the tent and teaching them our values and part of that is meeting people where they are. You know, I spend a good amount of time doing that, you know, I don't, you know, it's kind of like I went to divinity school and I got a master's in divinity. And I took a class called prophetic ministry. And what it is is you usually try to meet people and talk to them without using religious language that may push some people away. And that's meeting them with where they are.

They wear still native merchants. It's called the debt. As the as the general sorta term that getting on with life and getting on with running a business so to bring us a little bit further forward in history. And let's talk about some of these different kinds of merchants that we had because as i mentioned. I think the misconception is that you know that black people didn't do any business and You know the watts came along. And did they think seventy in nineteen ninety four. We had all bunch of black businessmen. That's not true so at some different classes of of because you had rich places show so and out gloss over david so that i allowed the misled to also lead by themselves.

I don't and obstacle survived so now things moving on Things that people are saying can to help with the khurana virus and preventing it and everything ultraviolet lamps they can can can kill. I'm gonna go through a list and then you can just tell me off. Those hand dryers edri's they can kill. Covert nineteen ultra-violet limbs can kill covert nineteen alcohol or even worse chlorine. All of your body that can kill in nineteen those just those okay. A in effect in any of those so unfortunately the on affecting those. I think the idea of the ultraviolet is that there was a few studies done to stop If there was any link between beds and listening the spread of tb but covert is not the same type of organism covert is a virus and tv is a mycobacterium which is completely different. So those two actually have no link. That's one of those you know i was just going back to what i'm saying people. They you know they they sort of pick at an idea but then spread information about idea but in terms of the sprang yourself with alcohol that definitely knocking to kill the virus because the viruses inside of your body I definitely believe that hand. Sanitizer thing is a great way to not transmit the virus from one person to the knicks. Because if it is on your hands you have a better chance of removing whatever germs. They are on your hands with with. Dj alkyl those sorts of things however if somebody coughs in the room you know oh somewhere around you or you know. It's it's spread through Either through you know through to able insurance mission or what. We're seen hospitals as well. Is the fecal route as well. So conservatizing angie is good. But it's not going to prevent it from you know if somebody Cuffs ended it into your system once in your system. There's nothing you can do on the outside. That is gonna kill it and please don't go and drink a whole bottle of vodka something because that's just gonna cause alcohol poisoning is not to kill the the device once it is inside of your body either so many stories about that One of the things that. I always say to somebody if you to cuff. Please stay faraway so that you can faulk off and sometimes doesn't go down as well as could. The other thing is erica. Any old people can get covered. Let's definitely not true In fact with the the third way that we are seeing now most elderly people were actually vaccinated or a big population limo vaccinated so chain really the population that was being admitted to hospital. What will the younger people because they hadn't been vaccinated yet and so if you feel like you're twenty years old was the two years old and you'll save that is completely incorrect. You are as much at risk of having covert and your much risk of having dad. Kobe I've seen multiple patients. That all twenty five to fifty years old to have landed up in icu. And some of them have unfortunately even died I have so many colleagues who have contracted covert itself that i work with You know myself included..

Well then why are you getting rid of somebody with that kind of experience like sean has pours his heart into it dedicated. You know he's not doing that for prestige or money or title.

"Have sneaky big news coming out of pittsburgh. This is bad and it. Serious steelers superstar linebacker. Tj what is declining to practice. This has been getting very little attention. He's been sitting out since the start of camp wants to contract the steelers having given him one and it's almost impossible to quantify just how good this guy is. He comes off a season in which he led the league with fifteen sacks he had the best pass rush win rate sport meaning. He beat his blocker within two and a half seconds. So he's a superstar. This is a guy. many people are being. It'd be the defensive. Mvp and jeff. Can you explain because again. This is not getting as much attention as i think it should be. Exactly what it is going on there will let me explain why to you just mentioned. Tj watt has been sitting out. he actually hasn't and that's what makes this. Such a weird scenario. Is that because of the fines that players face for a holdout now mandated by the players or not sitting in essentially so he's been going through practices in individual drills but then sitting out team drills and there was sort of. I think there's lingering expectation that that would change once the regular season arrived. It hasn't now mike. Tomlin is scheduled to address the media today. Maybe we'll get some more clarity on what it would take if the team perhaps plans to suit them up anyway on sunday even though he's in team but no doubt a fascinating situation with this added layer the steelers on the fact. They do new deals with players during the regular season. So this doesn't get done before sunday. We're in new territory when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers and negotiations with players.

"The pittsburgh. Steelers acquired a cello witherspoon who was drafted by the san francisco. Forty niners spent four years with san francisco. The seattle seahawks obtained in prior to the twenty twenty one season in the steelers sent a fifth round draft. Pick to seattle for witherspoon. Okay this is another one of those moments where the steelers fan base is already reeling a little bit. they're frustrated. There's not j. watt contract. All of a sudden steph onto it zach banner anthony macfarlane gone injured reserve which means they are missing games one two and three no matter what then the steelers pull off a trade in. You probably saw breaking news trade alert the steelers make a trade for cornerback in. You're thinking okay here we go. Let's do this. And it's a keller witherspoon if you're like me and i'm being honest i'm always honest with you. That's why. I hope that. I can connect with you as my listeners. My reaction was who the heck is this guy. I never heard of this guy now. Granted i'm not a draft. Nick i did get into this draft in the twenty twenty one draft i was i studied. More prospects did more breakdowns. And i've ever had in my entire life. Mope witherspoon was drafted back in two thousand seventeen. So i definitely was not doing all that digging back then nonetheless you learn a little bit about the player after you get to know him in after the trade was announced as official by the steelers. Now you're looking at okay. What is this guy brain to the team. Well when we find out. And this is from people like jeffrey benedict. When people like kevin smith who find out that he's a an typically an outside cornerback. He's not a physical has good ball skills. Good size six to everyone always talks about. Oh you can't have a cornerback. That's under six foot. He sticks to ran a four five forty. I believe four or five. Maybe it was right around there.

"The rolling stones have often been described as the greatest rock and roll band in the history of rock and roll. We're talking over years about mick jagger. Brian jones keith. Richards bill wyman mick taylor and ronnie wood and the drummer charlie watts who was described in a recent new york times headline as the serene drummer who kept the stones rolling. That times article went on to say that while mr richards guitar. Riff defined the band's most famous single satisfaction. Mr watts drum pattern was just as essential. And that he charlie watts was quote relentless on painted black and supple on ruby tuesday and the master of funky groove on honky. Tonk woman not surprising since jazz was his. I love indeed stones guitarist. Keith richards road. The charlie watts has always been the bed that i lie on musically music including songs lyrics and performance. They are a powerful form of free speech protected by the first amendment and the rolling stones have helped us celebrate that freedom. Their drummer charlie. Watts gave us the satisfaction of music. That sustained us. He died in late august at the age of eighty

"That like it was charlie that was making mic dance as well and when you see that incredible physically that's coming from that kind of circuit right from troy. But i think i think also that to your point about dance music. I think that. Charlie watts represents like this common root of all this popular music. Think about jazz and rock is sort of like these. You know bifurcated things or whatever. But it's like charlie's coming out of a time when jazz was dance music as well. That's the role the drummer for him. It's like making people making people move and these. These distinctions between these styles are fairly irrelevant. When you get to the point of charlie watts. And i think that i wonder how many more drummers out there there are were that those are so converged in one person aside from you know a ring or something like that like we're really getting to the end of that generation where all that stuff was so commonly linked. We were lucky enough for many years. for decades. after the beatles broke up for decades and decades. You could go and see the rolling stones like sure bill cameron wasn't there. You know brian jones wasn't there either. But it still was the stones There you could pretty much say you saw this thing that changed the world was right in front of your eyes and that wa. I kind of hope that they still do play. And i think they'll be great with steve jordan but it won't be that stones. I think we're really lucky. Does this report a little later. That we we got to see. And i think that's part of as much as we're mourning for charlie in particular. It's it's also hard not to two more net that that connection to the original thing yet and he never lost that and even if you went to see it turns out the Shows from the summer of twenty nineteen. Those were the last stone shows so thinking about the last time i ever saw charlie with the stones that was like god that was his last show ever was just a couple of weeks later him playing honky tonk women another great example of a song that is barely asong. Except it's just charlie do your thing and we'll bill in the parts around you like and that's basically what honky-tonk is and when charlie was playing that song it never reached the point where people were sitting back and going. Oh i remember this one. This brings back fond memories like it was a you know. Get up and move song. And charlie took pride in that. He cared deeply about that. You know that ethic and like you said you know making mic dance you know and making sure everybody was dancing to that one. He never surrendered him into that. Yeah i think watching that again watching that that shine a light thing like yeah somehow this incredibly band of incredibly old guys like the show still feels like wild it still feels like this weird wired edge to it and that is mick sure and that is keith. Sure but again. Like where's that pulse of that coming from you know what i mean like. You're saying it doesn't feel like an old east show like somehow and that has to have something to do charley right and because we've been talking about the beatles and ringo like you go see ringo and his all star band and reno is drumming and drumming fantastically for a large part of the show. And when he's not drumming up and dancing he's you know it's something about. I don't know what it is. These drummers they age like so gracefully because don't lose touch with the physicality and the vitality of it and that sense of rhythm. I mean it's really amazing like how we're seeing this age of drummers just fantastically aging with almost insane reserves vitality but charlie watts absolutely that never lost the stroke thanks so much sue rob sheffield and hank steamer. That.

"People are saying so much that. I didn't expect that this would affect me the way it did but charlie put him is the working musician you know. I was really excited to see him back on the road back with the stones as more excited about my next stone. Show than my first one with charlie. There was always a sense. He was a working musician. He was in it for the long haul and i wanted to hear him. Next time i was curious about the worke still had ahead of it. I mean you know stating the obvious but we just hadn't lost a member of the rolling stones for quite some time vista fixed. Yes so there's there's just a broader thing about that. It's just. I mean everyone understood that we're talking about eight year old man and and even you know had he stayed healthy and around. There was gonna be a finite limit of how no one had ever been rocky road drummer into their eighties. It just hasn't been done so there was he was already pushing the physical limits of this thing. And it's and that's worth talking about as well one of the things that the other guys in the band. Because i did all these stones interviews over the years. And i don't think i ever talked to charlie once. He just didn't talk but what they would say about him is that he was in pain. After the shows in the later years like he was he would have to himself down at best and that all that effortlessness was actually a lot of effort. But the other thing is in hanky pie. Speak to this. Is that drummers have always said to member trae cool from green day and other people saying that the the only way that you can keep going is to be more like charlie watts as far as playing correctly and not trying to destroy the drum kit and just getting yourself into into a proper way of playing as possible or else you're hopeless so there was data. I mean. I think his jazz trained sort of approach allowed him to keep going beyond. What many drummers could ever manage right yeah. I mean he didn't smash the drums. And i think that's again. I mean just think about all the contemporaries and just sort of like what became of them. You know like whether it's keith moon or or bottom or whoever i mean you know and also you can look at the size of his kid too. I think that's an obvious thing. That's easy to overlook. I mean he's sitting there playing just a little for peace for peace kid like he never. He never sort of felt the need to fill the stage up with that and it wasn't an athletic display with him. You know what. I mean and drumming. Is you know there's a theatrical element of it you know and i mean you can speak a bottom. You can speak up. Like dave grow ever but i think people in general they like to see a drummer like sort of kicking kicking the crap out of the kid. And that's that's a fun thing to watch but charlie. He took a different path. He would often talk about like a player. Like joe. morello. The day. Brubeck drummer. And i think if you if you look at clips of a player like that who was about like the sophistication the finesse. And that's what's exciting. About watching a joe morello as opposed to And rabbits way interesting. You say you say elvin jones who who who is hard really hard hitting player and kind of you know. How deep rumbling sound and and charlie was. It was just much more streamlined. I've just been sort of like a being a lot of the early stones. Like seventy stuff and then kind of flashing forward to like eighties nineties beyond and just thinking about you know. There's all these like we said. There's all these sort of paradoxes about about this guy but the thing that keeps striking me as somebody who's who's like sent. Rhythmic sensibilities are coming out of like the forties and fifties. And then who's playing these very streamlined. Backbeat that made a lot of sense. Let's say in the sixties and then somehow this rhythmic language translates completely to to almost a disco. Feel on something like miss. You and again. I'm sure you too can cite a lot of other examples of of just somehow the same charlie. Watts rhythm made sense in these later times without really much of an adjustment at all like how is that possible. I think part of it is just his very lack of attachment to rock and roll as a thing meant that he psalm selfish. Just a sort of a drummer as a professional drummer. And if the style shifting a little bit the same way a big band drummer might shift to the next thing. Because you're a working musician. I think it was part of that. Mentality it's not. I mean it's only if you're very into yourself right. I think that you would refuse to shift styles and listen to what people are doing and move if thought of yourself as this as some monster of rock who does their thing. I won't do anything else then. It might be harder. But i think he was just i think he he had ears and was just willing and interested to adapt i. I'm talking one of the interviews about about the meters that that came well after you know his formative years but he he was obviously listening very closely to that so he i think that's a lot of it. Rob how do you see. It will definitely i mean he was always a part of. It is just the marvel that the stones especially in the eighties when all the other bands of their generation. We're making all the mistakes that the stones weren't making at that time everybody was getting really into over dubs and textures and and and super over processing their sound. In lots of ways and charlie was always committed to forward momentum he was always making it repulsive and progressive. And that's why when you listen to the stones and if you were listening in nineteen eighty one compared to new record by other like top tier rock bands that year. The stones were the ones who are like..

"A lot of this in ringo starr to me. This is what we think of when we think of that generation of british that's why we love the feel of these players especially those two because they're like the backbeat kings but yeah absolutely. I think that it's all about like laying back and really. How do you drive the band while also somehow seeming relaxed. I think that was whatever. When marvel that charlie watts like when watching it how like how could he be so unflappable in the midst of this kind of like very like charged atmosphere. It's almost like he likes centered the thing with his personality. Somehow it rob. I know you've written about his blatantly seeming unimpressed by like the circus of the stones or whatever kind of the peacock nature of mick jagger or something like that it's just like this was evident is personality and it was like he just kept everything on an even keel which again has nothing to do with like ginger baker would do or something like that would be all about sort of like providing his own. Kind of like thunderous commentary and really. You're charging ahead and watches. Like no. I'm gonna i'm gonna like keep this baseline and you can set a watch by it. You know totally. I remember reading an interviewer charlie. Watts said that when he was on stage with the stones he would fantasizing his head that he was elvin jones and that he would just be pretending he was elvin jones on stage which is such a mind blowing. It blew my mind to read that as a teenager. Because i thought everybody else's fantasizing about being charlie watts but to him he was like this is okay. But it's not elvin jones. Well well yeah. I mean it's absolutely fascinating again. Like these interviews. What he was talking to chad smith or many of the other ones like he's talking about having like he's collecting tony williams ride cymbals or mel lewis's like green sparkle drum kit and putting them in a warehouse and even he is saying like. I don't even know why i have this stuff. I don't even know what i intend to do with it. It's just more that like he was so he was so enamored of that art form and in a way robe-like as you pointed out that he just didn't seem to be with rock and roll like rocky. It was almost dismissive like the way that he would talk about it. Like this whole thing about you know. I think that quote was progression. Was miles davis playing modal jazz. You can't do that in rock or something. And it's like it's amazing that this like not being impressed with that idiom was somehow what allowed him to be to excel in it or something totally because he. I mean that that really kinda sums it up that he became the greatest of rock and roll drummers because he was aspiring to something so it kept him from being unselfconsciously about it. I mean a lot of like what you said about that. Generation of british players being often very jazz influenced sometimes in ways that were really kind of showy and silly you know like a lot of like the british musicians from that generation would do something like cover cork by hat on a record or something like that as a yes. I've listened to these records kind of like flashing their cards of credit whereas like charlie. Watts never did anything like that. On stage or on a record he was very focused. It's almost like the way you're describing it. What he took from jazz is almost like a an ethic. You know a code of a jazz drummer. Does this serves this. It's not about getting attention. Yeah and when you saw him play like i was. I was just watching a clip. I think he was on like the dennis miller show with his jazz quintet in the nineties. And it's just it's incredible because he was always named checking people like tony williams like these super progressive type jazz. When you saw him play jazz. It sounded like one thousand nine hundred fifty or even earlier. You know what i mean like. He's just sitting there very gently like playing. You know he. He was very happy company role in those contexts as well. He's sitting here. Playing brushes behind bernard fowler. Singing like lieberman or something like that. And also there was that amazing He had this orchestra in the eighties. Which i was sort of unfamiliar with until recently. But but he sort of stocked it with all these jazz musicians and there are actually three drummers in it. And he's kind of just like sitting back and letting john stevens who's this really notices like free jazz free improv drummer. Like basically play the leading role and even in that context. It has his name on it. He's just like almos- you have to really pay attention. Even remember that. Charlie watts a sitting there. It's really remarkable how self-effacing he could be you know it's interesting to read interviews with him including the previously unpublished. Michael gilmore interview that we posted on rolling stone dot com. Which i recommend you know the extent to which keith specifically introduced charlie to allow this music. That meant everything to to making keith. He made him sort of listen to elvis presley as a musician. He had heard elvis like everyone else's generation but he hasn't really been paying attention to that way pay attention to dj fontana whoever's playing and what was good about it and it seems like keith. In that way you can talk stones and all of them have that record collector gig side to them. Which is so fascinating that i've talked to this before. But you know you just start mic talking about blues harmonica monica. And all of a sudden this entirely different person emerges where he's just literally geeking out and is so extraordinary and that's who they were they. Were you know toting these records but they were making keith. We're toting differ records and in the way that your friend like it might not be your core thing but it's the thing that teaches you about new learn it. That's how he learned the rock and roll stuff. Probably even the record stuff was came from keith. And he did of course learn and respect stuff. It just wasn't like his core stuff. I which is very interesting to me. Rabbi wonder if you could just talk about charlie as the persona as well just like the character of charlie watts that we got to know over six decades. He was someone who famously was married to the same woman for fifty seven years while being a member of the rolling stones that combination is so much cognitive dissonance and even the other stones were really kind of blown away by it. I mentioned in my tribute. A fantastic nine hundred. Eighty one cover story on keith interview and the question is do you in the stones. Do you hang out when you're not making music together. You know each other socially and keats only response to that is to start talking about charlie and how he gets to. Charlie visits every couple of months. He doesn't mention anybody else in the band or even notice that they might be like obviously interviewers hoping he's got some making keep hanging out off the clock stories and keep cannot. Stop talking about charlie into how much he wants charlie to approve of him and that was always some of the fascinating things that all the other stones were competing with each other to be charlie's favorite. So there's the beautiful dynamic that i always loved whenever mick would out a solo album and people would attack it and keith would say something really funny and nasty in public about how terrible the latest mix l. album was in mixed retort was always well charlie liked it and it was like that was the quarterfinal opinion that they could all agree to you. And you really tell mick. Did not care whether keep these records. He only worried about whether charlie said that he liked them. And keep only worried about what charlie thought of him. As a musician or person he had that mystique that was so intimidating to the other stones and nobody ever intimidated the rolling stones. And that was part of the the charlie mystique and for those of us who were mtv kids and we grew up seeing the stones videos like start me up to classic one hang fire another classic one you know mixes up front like prancing away genius keith. And ronnie or posing and bill wyman is in the back rolling his eyes and there's these funny moments earnings videos where mick turns away from the camera and you can see and tries to make contact with charlie just to get facial expression out of him and it's funny how it just does not work. There's a couple of moments in the video. Are charlie's like oh my god you wanna facial expression fine fine. I'll try but that's not what he did. And that's of goes back to. The sort of the jazz code tank was talking about that. You know he was. He was a working musician. Not a star. And i think that's part of the reason that his death is hitting everybody so hard. I'm always surprised..

Which is something that charlie juyuan extensively. That was what he loves was jazz and jazz drummers. Maybe just talk a little bit about what charlie took from. Jazz has roots and jazz and some of the drummer's who influence them and how they influenced him. Yeah well you know. Just just listening to the interviews over the past few days. Jazz was an and. I got this little bit from chad smith red peppers when i talked to him because he had an interview charlie back in two thousand eighteen. But really if anyone seemingly sat down and talk to charlie watts about music about anything he would always direct the conversation back to jazz and it wasn't just sort of like a like a name checking thing like his knowledge went incredibly deep. You know he talked to to chat about how she hamilton. On the early gerry mulligan recordings was a big influence. He talk about. You know. Miles davis benny goodman charlie parker constantly. I mean he was he was like a real head. He talked about how a friend his friend and he used to. Sort of sit around like you. They had their credits. Memorized on. The louis armstrong. Hot five and hot seven recordings. This was the you know the kind of the soil that he came out of like as a fan and rob mentioned in his in his great tribute that his engagement with rock and roll was just sort of not. That's not where he was coming from at the time that he entered the stones. But i think that. I think that charlie watts. I think there's a you know. It's it's often said with so many of these rock drummers generation. I think it's often said that these people are coming out of jazz. And i think you can say this out of so many people whether it's ginger baker a rough contemporary or someone like bill ward or bill bradford or john bottom. I mean it's a whole generation of british rock drummers who are coming out of jazz. I think it's interesting though to look at like you know what they took out of it and i think that someone like ginger baker who was obviously a super flamboyant player. You know very interested in like you know playing solos and just really like kind of being out front in a way that maybe a drummer buddy. Rich would be or an art blakey or one of these type. A jazz drummers. I think that it's not so simple to say that. Charlie watts is just like straight up coming out of jazz because it's more like you know what school are mindset of jazz because the fact that he cited chico hamilton on these gerry. Mulligan records is very telling chico hamilton. A west coast drummer. Who's very known for. Sort of tasteful understated playing. I've also heard. Charlie watts shout out. Paul motion of the early bill evans trio and very much these drummers who who were very comfortable and an accompanying role and essentially being background musicians and that and that not being like an insult or second class but just literally. That was their function in the band. Charlie watts off and talked about how he you know being a drummer. It's like he wasn't gonna sit around and play drums by himself. You know what i'm saying like he was he was very comfortable with the idea of accompanying and he often said he had no interest in playing drum solos. So i think that you do hear jazz in charlie watts. But it's almost like in this very subtle shading. You're not gonna hear him. Playing like tink tink traditional jazz. Rhythm like the way you might ginger baker peppering. That'd with cream these long like improvisational excursions. Charlie charlie watson's essentially a pop drummer working in like a backbeat format and he was very committed to the art and craft of of a backbeat and rob. I know you quoted that that amazing. From charlie where he was talking about how rock music is dance music to him like it wasn't a progressive music. It wasn't really about to him. Jazz representative progressive music rock more except you know represented kind of laying in the pocket and just kind of laying it down and i think that his art was really laying it down and also making it feel as i know that darryl jones the longtime bates for the stone says has referred to swagger that he brought to it and to me like. That's where the jazz comes. It's not like you're going to hear jazz figures in his playing. You're gonna hear like a sensibility to executing a backbeat and making it feel just giving it that sort of human feeling that that is you know it's like you could have a drum machine playing behind the rolling stones and some people might not notice it but you need that little he puts sort of like an i guess i would say like almost like a grease on it. There's a slight little little accent that he puts on the backbeat. That makes it. Just feel good at whatever tempo. He was playing. I think to me. That's the jazz and charlie watts. Well said i think max weinberg in a different interview pointed out that out. Jackson the stacks folk tremor was one of the guys who popularized this this thing that's so essential to what we think of groove is laying back on the backbeat which is literally playing the know the two in the four of every bar you playing in milliseconds after where a metronome play it right and so that's that's where a lot of the swing comes from. That's where a lot of the field comes from. And that's a huge thing that charlie watts tended to do right. yeah absolutely. I was listening to a k. Hear me knocking earlier and thinking about how the beat to that. It's just to the point where it would be late if he hit. It hit the snare later on that kind of like halftime. Beautiful halftime groove. On that i.

My Husband Told Me To Quit Undressing In Front of the Window

"My husband told me to quit undressing in front of the window. There's no place like home when you stayed in a motel. You're standing naked in front of the window again. My husband said then. He closed the blinds. You're probably thinking if you know me at all that this doesn't sound like me to be standing naked in front of a window and you're right at sixty eight years old. I don't gyrate nude for all the world to see. But i had a perfectly valid reason for dressing with the blinds open. The motel room was dark as a cave. Maybe my vision is failing. But i don't think so. I can still read the fine print and the eye doctor confirmed last week that my eyes were doing great her words but i have spent huge amounts of time in motel rooms recently and they are dark. I begin turning on lamps as soon as i swipe my keycard and crossed the threshold. And i don't stop until i reached the air conditioner control panel on the opposite side of the room by this time. Six twenty watt lamps glow dimly because six dim lamps only succeeded in throwing faint shadows across the room. I thrust aside the curtains push back the blinds and let the light poor in the view from the motel window is never much a parking lot or maybe a retaining wall one time. We overlooked a construction site but at least sunlight can seep through illuminating the room. Enough for me to tell if i've grabbed my black jeans or my blue ones are first motel. Stint of the summer was in minnesota. Because we went to visit kids and grandkids. We even took some grandkids from georgia with us so they can visit their cousins. For three days. I accuse the georgia grandkids of accidentally packing my swim bottoms in their luggage.

"Earlier this month. The rolling stones announced that drummer. charlie. Watts wouldn't be able to join the band as it kicked off. Twenty twenty one tour in north america. He was recovering from an unspecified medical procedure. The ban said this week. We learned of watts's death in a london hospital at the age of eighty in abandoned eclectic colorful characters. Watts was a steady force for both the stones and for rock and roll. Abc news entertainment producer. Matt wolf has more on his legacy jerry. Charlie watts once said in an interview that being drummer an outfit like the rolling stones like across between being an athlete and a total nervous wreck site. You wouldn't do it after watching him play with the world's greatest rock and roll band for over fifty years the of cool in grace behind his drum kits stage presence almost giving off this. Been there done that kind of vibe. That's because he did it so well. One of the food in playing. Dr never learned to fly a washer. A should have gone to school in announced do it and it would seem everything turned out just fine. There's charlie talking about his craft on the stones youtube channel. Now with a lot of people don't know is before joining the bad back in nineteen sixty three rock and roll was the furthest thing on his mind growing up in post world war two wembley in the uk. Charlie immersed himself in jazz recordings amassing a sizable collection of vinyl singles. Practicing his drumming skills to the sounds of charlie parker duke. Ellington elvin jones and johnny dodds. You'll young they have to learn volumes. Really one of the hogg thing to play with great intensity very clearly as a young man. He had a good thing going laying with local outfits and jazz and blues clubs in and around london while studying to be a graphic designer even securing a fulltime job at a london ad agency after college drumming became his side hustle.

I know it's going to be something wild but in high wanted to be something super normal and crazy like ed. Can you imagine. make my life. Well whatever the baby's name might be they're already making the tabloids of course and there's good news and the not so good news like most kardashian stories right yeah so the good news is a source told page six. The entire family is beyond excited. They truly are a family of the more the merrier so the more they can add they welcome that and kylie's always said she wants more kids so i guess that's great but the not so good news is where things are right now with kylie and her on again off again boyfriend. Travis scott My absolute favorite relationship status on again off again Because even though kylie travis might be having a second child together he's apparently still not ready to fully commit a source. Told hollywood life that despite the possible baby news. They're not actually back together right but it seems like highly watts more from travis. I mean especially if there's gonna be a second child and according to an article in the sun kylie wants one hundred percent commitment from travis. That's a wild idea. And she's ready to take the next step and she wants him to move into her thirty six million dollar mansion. But i guess he does not want to live in a palace. I don't know he's not ready for that. A source told the sun that as much as travis was also planning the future he was the one who is holding out until the timing was right. So travis has two homes. He has one in. La like highly but he has another one in his hometown of houston and apparently he's just spending about half as much time there so that's probably not easy and no definitely not according to that same source that has caused a lot of trust issues between the

Remembering Legendary Rolling Stones Drummer Charlie Watts

"Charlie Watts joined the Rolling Stones in the early days of the band 1963. It was a bit of a left turn. His early interest was in jazz, percussion and I love this quote from Charlie about joining the band, he said. It meant decades of quote, seeing mixed bum running around in front of me. Which in a way sums up what Charlie did. He provided the steady beat for the group, a group of rock stars who unlike him, embraced the rock star lifestyle and the limelight. Today. We really wanted to start by talking to someone who can help us parse out how important Charlie's worked with the Rolling Stones was Rob Bowman is a Grammy winner and professor of music at York University, as well as a music writer. He first met Charlie Watts in 2000, and two when he was interviewing him for a Rolling Stones book. And he kept in touch with Charlie ever since. Hi, Rob. Thanks for joining us. Good morning. How are you? I am. Well, I want to say I'm really sorry for your loss. Um, what was the first thing that came to your mind when you when you heard the news that Charlie Watts don't I guess. Shock so numb stand, you know, I've been worried for several years. Sooner or later. One of the Rolling Stones are just it was going to pass away or get sick and they were going to be able to play and, uh Couple weeks ago, Of course, Charlie announced Buddy, You've got an emergency operation and wouldn't play the tour and I thought it was so weird that they were going to do the tour without him, because that's not like them. Keith had always said they would never play without Charlie and figure it out. And, of course, when he passed yesterday, my meat so it is. That's why they decided to play the tour. They knew Charlie was dying, and Charlie. I told him to go ahead play. What do you remember? What do you remember first about meeting him? What was he like? He was an amazing, gentle, humble man with an incredible mind for jazz

Maybe this is true and his daughters with the car seats in the back for some reason. I don't know why like we'll only need to strengthen the girls anyway so he took the daughter's alive. Yes which mom dad. Yes and then what happened later and to be honest this is cut crazy at all. Always get into the dark aspect of things and allies to drag the body a body of a woman. That's hugh is a skinnier woman. Like she wasn't like she was the average. I would say someone who's one eighty two. Yeah i was just one eighty one sixty to drag on august. That's like i say one sixty for a woman okay. Something like that right like one. Twenty to one forty if you're fucking anorexic average average if you're if you're under one hundred pounds under and one twenty to one forty height known in average man's weights one sixty two right. That's bullshit. no that's average. Man's weight is between one six to twenty. No that's you're overweight fucking elliptical. What's dad buds are eaten skinny little bitch. Boys bodies are not odd dude. You know what. I'm actually so happy. I want to quickly do since. We've been fucking. I got a second job my tired. But oh my god. My entire day is lifting boxes off trucks. And i'm seeing muscles. I have never fucking seen in my life and i'm very happy it's we're coming out of its tumors like. That's that's a full back tumor yes. This is awesome daughters right and they're waiting probably in the house what he's dragging his wife's body and you can barely see on the footage but there is speculation that you can kind of see you think they wouldn't watch that footage before because everything like your name. Isn't that what they do. They show up to a place of suspect and they look around for a camera. Earth i fucking guys like the next door neighbor was like he already felt sketchy about him. Which was kinda nice guy was like you know a farmer do is a bigger do the beer. I think he had a beard. I i can't remember the fuck metro a couple of weeks ago but why was more no the the cops came out and said he had he came. He was suspect of fucking chris. Chris came over to his house and they were like and there's a lot of weird similarities with this and then the neighbor later on. We'll check this out. Here's the video footage. And i think i'm the time chris was staying there because the cops were asking for it. And you could kind of see chris's truck pull up back in and then there's very it's very blurry farther away you can see him. I think he was walking with his daughters after he load the body into the truck. Which so fucked up man. I do you see him walking..
