Keith Richards has revealed that the Rolling Stones will complete recording their next studio album with Steve Jordan replacing late drummer Charlie Watts.
“We do have a lot of stuff of Charlie Watts still in the can,” Richards said in an interview with Rolling Stones’ Music Now podcast.
“We were halfway through making an album when he died. Of course, if we want to carry on recording, we’re gonna need drums, and it’s gonna be Steve Jordan,” added the Rolling Stones guitarist.
Jordan replaced Charlie Watts as the Rolling Stones drummer for the rock band’s No Filter U.S. tour On August 5, 2021, following Watts’ health problems.
Watts died on August 24, aged 80. Richards recounted in his 2010 autobiography that in the 1980s Watts told him that if he ever wanted to work with another drummer, “Steve Jordan’s your man.”
Jordan will be on the drums for Rolling Stones’ summer European tour to celebrate their 60th anniversary.
