The Rolling Stones announced today that they were returning to the U.S. to continue the "No Filter Tour" this spring. Unfortunately, the closest they'll be getting to Boston is a Buffalo show June 6th.
Then Keith Richards unleashed this bombshell. He quit smoking! I think Keef was born with a cigarette in his mouth. "I've given up smoking...since October," Richards said. "Done that, been there (laughs)." It must have been tough for this Pirate of the Caribbean, last year he said that kicking nicotine was harder than kicking heroin.
So now Keith doesn't smoke and he's cut back on booze to the point that he just has an occasional glass of Pinot Grigio. Is this another sign that the apocalypse is upon us?
