Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts starred in a notorious fight that put their relationship as members of the Rolling Stones in jeopardy.

Charlie Watts, who died on Tuesday at the age of 80, was always characterized as one of the most laid-back members of the Rolling Stones.

The drummer of the British band always showed a more affable personality and tried to avoid being the center of attention of the group by giving few interviews.

However, more than 50 years of career with the group go a long way and there are hundreds of anecdotes that arose from this coexistence that now, on the occasion of his death, many remember again.

One of the most talked about was the fight, including a punch, that the quiet Watts got to hold with Mick Jagger himself And that shows that their relationship was marked by ups and downs.
