Rock music fans are still mourning the loss of music legend Charlie Watts. His co-band members from "The Rolling Stones" are also experiencing the same thing, but the show must go on as they're going on a tour despite their drummer's absence. However, frontman Mick Jagger is overthinking his fate because of his health; how true is this?
According to a report published by National Enquirer, Jagger fears for his life because he thinks that he's the next band member to die.
A source spoke to the publication, saying he's "feeling his mortality" after the drummer's sudden death, and he's been wondering if his "own end is around the corner.
This is because Jagger underwent heart surgery in 2019, and he's afraid that his heart will give up soon.
The "Rolling Stones" frontman is still suffering from Charlie Watts' death because the drummer was "there from the beginning," and they put an end to their feud.
The drummer's death is Jagger's realization that he needs to end his unhealthy lifestyle, like going on fast-paced world tours and having a girlfriend who's much younger than him.
"Charlie's death has him thinking he needs to slow down." An insider told the publication.
