A maestro of modern music--rock was one of his fortes but he also was a superb jazz drummer and big band/swing bandleader. The Stones won't be the same, but that's not news.

And then there were Three (Jagger, Richards, and Wyman)

Wyman will be 85 in October, which is like a 120 in human years (rocker years being figured differently).  One reason he has beaten the odds is that he quit the stones over 25 years ago for a slower lifestyle.
