As fans of the Rolling Stones mourned the death of drummer Charlie Watts, and non-fans learned more about the unique style, cool, and calm he brought to The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band, one of the fascinating things we learned was that Mr. Watts, an art school graduate, had actually sketched the bedrooms he had slept in while on the road -- every one since 1967!
The Rolling Stones have performed well over 2,000 concerts in their long career. With two nights minimum per concert, plus assorted other travel, by our calculations, Mr. Watts' sketchbooks must contain over 5,000 beds and hotel rooms! Imagine how the arc of the Stones' career would be told -- from the modest beginnings through their tremendous success -- by these drawings of their hotel rooms that must range from slovenly to luxurious.
Mr. Watts' modest and laid-back style reminds us that you don't need to be a dazzling rock star in order to sleep like one. Think of the luxury hotel quality bedding that awaits the world's top performers: the softest mattress toppers, comfiest mattress pads, the best quality sheets, luxurious hotel pillows such as down pillows or cooling pillows, in any shape and material you choose, with elegant hotel comforters on top.
You might even be tempted to sketch the beautiful arrangement you have created in your room, much as the one that famously inspired Vincent Van Gogh in 1888.
