Charlie "Pokerface" Watts, of course - the man that never wanted to play in a rock band and be a star, and only goes on tour with him so he can play the drums. He's unique, and without him they wouldn't be the same.

He is the only drummer I know that skips the hi hat when hitting the snare drum. One of the few drummers that has a recognisable style. Like Ian Paice of Deep Purple.
