Bill attended a private viewing of Christie’s Charlie Watts collection, currently up for auction.

Bill, like his friend Charlie, is a collector, and had this to say about the collection:

“Charlie’s auction of his collection of books is unbelievable! I have known from over the years that my best friend Charlie collected many things in his life – as I did, but this particular collection of books astounded me.”

– Bill Wyman

The auction is a two-part auction comprising an extraordinary library of modern first editions together with landmarks from the world of jazz, collected by renowned musician and Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts (1941–2021).

The flagship auction, Charlie Watts: Literature and Jazz Part I, will take place live in London on 28 September, with a Part II open for bidding from 15 to 29 September.
