True Cool = Charlie Watts

The aim is to have no aim, but nail the center of the target anyway. Coolness is not giving a fuck without saying "I don't give a fuck". And nobody, in my estimation, is less affected and more spot on than the backbone of the goddamn Rolling Stones.

"When people talk about the '60s I never think that was me there. It was me and I was in it, but I was never enamoured with all that. It's supposed to be sex and drugs and rock and roll and I'm not really like that. I've never really seen the Rolling Stones as anything."

    This post makes me think - that idea of how sometimes people tie themselves in knots trying to see how others see them - not Charlie, though. I can't imagine how he can be so unfazed by the whole world surging around him, and bending at the force of his talent...
