Ohio Stadium's Tobacco Ban Applies to Everyone but Keith Richards

Keith Richards does not give a damn about Ohio Stadium's tobacco ban.

Ohio Stadium first banned smoking in 1987 and the venue's policies currently forbid tobacco of all types – even you, sneaky nasal tobacco product consumer – but your mortal bans don't apply to the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards.

Here's the Stones guitarist tuning up in a makeshift dressing room within the stadium prior to Saturday night's performance at the Shoe. On the table in front of him are two packs of cigarettes, a lighter, a pair of scissors, an ashtray and Lord knows what else.

Bless whatever magic is running through that polluted bloodstream. Keith Richards is a national an international treasure.
