Stop the presses and cue all the bulletin/breaking news slides! He hasn't had one since October. Maybe he actually WILL outlive us all (and the cockroaches). Keith Richards quit smoking - just in time for the Rolling Stones tour - CNN I did a search for this and didn't see it posted yet, if it's duplication mods please delete or merge my comment. I say good for him. Anecdotal stories of people smoking 5 packs a day and living to 99 aside, I've seen those things wreak too much misery on folks to romanticize the habit. Do any of them smoke anymore? I've not seen Mick pictured with one in decades, I know Woody quit when he had the lung cancer scare and I figure Charlie did when he had the throat cancer scare, and I know Bill quit a while back when the doctor told him he was one step away from the point of no return with emphysema (which IMO is worse in some ways than the Big C).
