Charlie Watts Slams David Bowie

The singer, who died on Jan. 10, 2016 due to liver cancer, also made headlines recently after the Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts said he does not think the "Space Oddity" singer was a musical genius.

Following Bowie's death, Watts said that he is quite surprised that there was an outpouring of grief among Bowie's fans.

"I thought people would have been very sad obviously, and he was a lovely guy and he wrote a couple of good songs. But for me, he wasn't this musical genius," said Watts.

Tony Visconti Remembers David Bowie

Following his death, Tony Visconti, Bowie's longtime friend, said that the singer thought he still had a few more months to live.

"Obviously, if he's excited about doing his next album, he must've thought he had a few more months. So the end must've been very rapid. I'm not privy to it. I don't know exactly, but he must've taken ill very quickly..." said Visconti.
