London: Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has no plans of quitting the band.

A report in an Australian website had suggested that the rocker had grown tired of touring.

However, a representative for the band has refuted the reports.
"Contrary to a fabricated and ill-informed report that appeared yesterday on a small music website in Australia, we would like to make it clear that drummer Charlie Watts has not left The Rolling Stones," the Daily Star quoted the spokesperson, as saying.

The rep added that Watts is "celebrating with the rest of the Stones, as the Exile album is number one in the U.K. charts".
The Exile on Main Street record had been first issued in 1972.
