London (ANI): Guitarist Keith Richards has apparently found an
unusual and amusing way to poke fun at anti-tobacco laws, for he
puffed a cotton wool cigarette during a show at London"s O2 Arena
recently. The Rolling Stones star lit up in defiance of the smoking
ban, but later told fans his cigarette was full of cotton wool. The
63-year-old star"s action prompted Greenwich Council to investigate
However, Richards escaped the clutches of law after the
investigators failed find any evidence of breach of the smoking
ban. “We found no evidence there was a breach of the smoking ban.
He made clear it was cotton wool. This was clearly a joke," The Sun
quoted a council spokesman, as saying.
