Scotland's Smoking Ban v. Keith Richards

Jeez, I couldn't have seen this one coming...
Keith Richards, the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist, may have fallen foul of Scotland's smoking ban after lighting up on stage in Glasgow.

The city council has confirmed it is investigating reports that Richards smoked throughout the gig at Hampden Park on Friday, which was attended by 50,000 fans.

One fan said: "I was quite near the back, but I could see that Keith Richards had something white in his mouth and there was smoke coming from his mouth.

"He kept smoking through the set, so it wasn't just for effect. He had it in his mouth while he was playing."
