Watts surprised by Stones 50th

The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has confessed he is surprised the band is still going after 50 years.

The 71-year-old musician revealed he didn't expect the Start Me Up rockers to stay together more than a few months, and this year they celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Charlie said: "When I joined the Rolling Stones... I thought it would last a few months, because that's what bands last.

"I'd been in a lot of bands up until then that last two or three months. Then it became three years. I thought that's it, it won't.

"We're very fortunate. One of the ways that it lasted so long is because we have a huge fan base, and I don't mean that in a conceited way, but it is that... and if people come [to see us play], you know, that keeps it going on and on."

The jazz drummer revealed he and the other Stones - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood - are planning to make a new documentary to mark their half century.

He said they were marking the anniversary with "Fifty years of things."

Charlie added: "A documentary, well, they haven't approved it yet. I haven't seen it, but we worked on that earlier this year. Books and things like that. There will be other things that the 50 years mean. And touring, we haven't gotten that far. We're still talking about the colour of the back page of the book, so we'll see what happens."
