Charlie Watts about working hard to learn his craft (2013):
“I really did my homework. Everything’s easier and quicker now. I wanted to be Max Roach or Kenny Clarke playing in New York with Charlie Parker in the front line. Not a bad aspiration. It actually meant a lot of bloody playing, a lot of work. I don’t think kids are interested in that. But that may be true of every generation, I don’t know. When I was what you’d call a young musician, jazz was very fashionable. It was very hip to know there was a new Miles Davis album out.”
