1166 The Rolling Stones after Charlie Watts

The Rolling Stones went on tour again, this video is from Madrid  ... they arrived back in Europe on June 1 as their SIXTY anniversary tour opened there. 

The opening night of a Stones tour will always, by their own admission, be a work in progress. But Steve Jordan, starting only his second itinerary in the drum seat owned for so many decades by Charlie Watts, proved a fine custodian, and any occasional misstep elsewhere is a price eminently worth paying for a band with such a continuing commitment to real live performance, with all its thrills and pitfalls.

Their new drummer (born January 14, 1957) is an American musical director, producer, songwriter, and musician. During the 1970s and 1980s, he was a member of the bands for the television shows Saturday Night Live and Late Night with David Letterman.

In the early 1980s, Jordan was a member of the band "Eye Witness", along with Anthony Jackson on bass, and Manolo Badrena on percussion. Since the mid 1980s, Jordan has also been a member of the X-Pensive Winos, the side project of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Jordan and Richards have been production and songwriting partners on many of Richards's solo works. In 2005, he became a member of the John Mayer Trio. Jordan also formed the band "The Verbs", which he fronts, with his wife Meegan Voss. 

On August 5, 2021, it was reported that Charlie Watts had elected to sit out the resumption of the US No Filter Tour due to a heart procedure surgery and that Jordan would replace him on drums.
