520    "Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters is 
       both a gonzo rush--capturing the bristling energy of the 
       Rolling Stones and the times in which they lived--and a 
       wide-eyed reflection on why the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll 
       Band in the World needed the world's greatest rock 'n' 
       roll drummer. Across five decades, Rolling Stones drummer 
       Charlie Watts has had the best seat in the house. Charlie 
       Watts, the anti-rock star--an urbane jazz fan with a dry 
       wit and little taste for the limelight--was witness to the
       most savage years in rock history, and emerged a hero, a 
       warrior poet. With his easy swing and often loping, uneven
       fills, he found nuance in a music that often had little 
       room for it, and along with his greatest ally, Keith 
       Richards, he gave the Stones their swaggering beat. While 
       others battled their drums, Charlie played his modest kit 
       with finesse and humility, and yet his relentless grooves 
       on the nastiest hard-rock numbers of the era ("Gimme 
       Shelter," "Street Fighting Man," "Brown Sugar," "Jumpin' 
       Jack Flash," etc.) delivered a dangerous authenticity to a
       band that on their best nights should have been put in 
       jail. Author Mike Edison, himself a notorious raconteur 
       and accomplished drummer, tells a tale of respect and 
       satisfaction that goes far beyond drums, drumming, and the
       Rolling Stones, ripping apart the history of rock'n'roll, 
       and celebrating sixty years of cultural upheaval. He tears
       the sheets off of the myths of music making, shredding the
       phonies and the frauds, and unifies the frayed edges of 
       disco, punk, blues, country, soul, jazz, and R&B--the 
       soundtrack of our lives. Highly opinionated, fearless, and
       often hilarious, Sympathy is as an unexpected treat for 
       music fans and pop culture mavens, as edgy and ribald as 
       the Rolling Stones at their finest, never losing sight of 
       the sex and magic that puts the roll in the rock--the beat,
       that crazy beat!--and the man who drove the band, their 
       true engine, the utterly irreplaceable Charlie Watts."--
