When this news are reported all over the world it shows. TASS reports (in Russian), and everyone else. He was a nice guy of Rolling Stones. I never was INTO The Rolling Stones, but Soviet mignon (meaning 4 songs, not LP) in 1970 (yes, ninety seventy) captivated me as it did everyone else who were leaving a childhood. Excellent jazz drummer and great artist in his own right, in the times when talent mattered, he will be remembered as one of the greatest of generation which made UK cool as it did a great modern music. Globally.
Those whose heart didn't react to this sadness--go fuck yourself. Because it is a proper day to Paint It Black.
