Hi!
It isn't an important question, but I'd like to know, because somebody told me, that Brian was smoking in the early '70s, and there was a picture about him playing guitar with a cigarette in his mouth (I told that it should be Slash :-D But in the early '70s???).
So is this true? Did anybody see this picture?
Thnx a lot!!

He's still smoking in restaraunts, some other public places, and especially he smokes a lot before joining the fox hunting fun. And you know, he smokes like an old railway engine before sticking harpoon (with the WWRY musical sticker on it) in the whale's back.

If you read the replies really well they already answered.

Brian was anti-smoking.

What kind of answer you've expected?

"because somebody told me, that Brian was smoking in the early '70s, and there was a picture about him playing guitar with a cigarette in his mouth (I told that it should be Slash :-D But in the early '70s???). So is this true? Did anybody see this picture?"

Yes, that 'somebody' did. We didn't.

Isn´t there a clip on youtube where it looks like he´s flicking a cigarette away at the Wembley 86 gig? Maybe a cigarette, maybe just a plectrum...but since he´s using a coin i belive it more likely to be a cig.

Yeah...I knew it! If I also remember correctly Brian was confronted with it, since he´s a non smoking spokesman.
