Late Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts is the subject of an authorized biography slated for release in the fall. Charlie’s Good Tonight: The Authorized Biography of Charlie Watts hits shelves on October 11th via HarperCollins Publishers.

Written by author/broadcaster Paul Sexton, the biography will feature forwards from Watts’ mates Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham penned a forward to the book which hosts interviews with Mick, Keith, Ronnie Wood, and “countless” family members and friends. Sexton has covered The Stones for over a quarter-century and got to know the drummer over the years.

“One of Charlie’s good friends said to me that he was a very easy man to love,” Sexton said in a statement. “Having had the pleasure of his company on so many occasions over the course of more than a quarter of a century, that’s a sentiment I echo wholeheartedly. To be able, with the help and encouragement of those who knew him best, to draw on my time with this unique man and his fellow Rolling Stones to write his authorized biography, is a thrill and an honor.”

Additionally, Charlie’s Good Tonight will contain exclusive photos of Watts donated by those closest to him. Watts died on August 24th, 2021 after providing The Rolling Stones with nearly 60 years of faithful service. Since then, Steve Jordan has filled in behind the kit as The Stones once again tour the globe.

“My father was an intensely humble and private person off the stage, who relished and protected his private time at home with us,” Watts’ daughter Seraphina said in a statement. “We were so very touched by the outpouring of love and support from all his fans when he died. We’re very happy and grateful that Paul, who interviewed my father many times over many years, and whom my father liked and respected, is the one writing this very special book about this very special man.”
