Keith Richards

THE ROLLING STONES iconic guitarist Keith Richards has announced that he stopped smoking this past October.

“I’ve given up smoking… since October. Done that, been there. [Laughs],” he said during an appearance on Q104.3.

When asked about his decision to quit smoking, Richards responded: “I think both Mick [Jagger] and I felt that on the last tour we were just getting going,” Richards said.

“[We]’ve got to continue this.”
