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.
Richards, who has twice been charged for hard drugs offences, could be fined £50 if he is found to have contravened the ban, which was introduced earlier this year to combat the effects of passive smoking.
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."
A spokesman for the anti-smoking charity ASH Scotland said: "We welcome that Glasgow City Council is taking its responsibility to enforce the ban seriously.
"We realise also though, that Keith Richards did hurt his head recently and might not have been fully compus mentis."
From the Boston Herald:
"The Rolling Stones are posers," the 62-year-old [Steve Miller] said. "When you go see the Rolling Stones, most of it is Mick Jagger bouncing around onstage. Flabby arms, pasty white skin, shaking his 65-year-old ass (he's 63). I've seen the Rolling Stones and you can't take your eyes off Mick because he's so weird. He's bouncing around like a drag queen. They don't really have to do that. The music is really good, but it's not about the music."

Speaking of Leslie West , here is a cover of Mississippi Queen by Molly Hatchet with Ted Nugent. The introduction alone is priceless.
The photo is an inaccurate representaion of this song because it features original singer Danny Joe Brown not Jimmy Farrar who sings here. It is a great photo none the less.

Reading about Jack Logan at Aquarium Drunkard reminded me of how much of an influence he is on the Philco Brothers. Here's a couple covers. Hope we got all the words right.
philco brothers sing town crier
philco brothers sing walking time
Jack Logan's great album Tinker (and others) can be found at iTunes
We recommend you buy them all!

I just recieved my copy of the Ass Ponys'
The Okra Years in the mail. It is a compilation of early material with some bonus covers (Velvets, Pere Ubu) thrown in. Hearing Mr. Superlove reminded me of this great cover by The Afghan Whigs from an early 90's split single.
Did you know Kenny Rogers had his own custom record label back in the early 70's?
Well now you do.
I had a few minutes to spare during work so I stopped into my favorite record store The Time Capsule in Cranston RI and quickly picked up a few LP's.
I bought this one just because the cover made me laugh. Needless to say this ain't one of Kenny's best but here's a cover of Merle Haggard that was almost a hit.

Richards, 62, also disclosed this week that his brain injury had not been sustained by falling out of a coconut tree but from a large shrub. It had originally been reported that the guitarist needed surgery after a tumble from a large palm while picking coconuts on holiday in Fiji.
Richards said at a press conference to kick off the delayed European leg of the Stones' world tour: "If you saw the tree you would realise the joke. This was just a very little tree." He indicated that the tree was about 5ft high.
