I'm sitting here idly trying to think of cigar-smoking musicians. Why don't you add to this, or start another list for actors, and so on?

Don't cheat by looking at Cigar Aficionado back issues!!!

OK...
These like stogies and have said so.
They may have stopped... if they're barking.

Musicians who like cigars (from my recall):

Jools Holland
ALL of Aerosmith
The Cuban drummer in Bon Jovi
The Beatles (early success shots)
Murray Head
Tom Jones
Puff (ha ha) Diddy
Ludicrous (sp?)

There must be wagonloads of Blues guys!

More later. Have to go out.
But you can add yours while I'm away! :D

I would guess some members of Pink Floyd... "Have A Cigar." Although I admit I've never seen any of them smoking cigars. Oh - David Lee Roth. He smokes stogies all the time.

Major Tom - Yup. Me! :D

Kid Rock's another.
Charlie Watts - (Rolling Stones drummer).
Mick Hucknall/Simply Red. Knocks them back in a doc of the band shot in Cuba.

I'll keep thinking...

LUCIANO PAVAROTTI
The larger-than-life tenor used to enjoy the occasional Cuban, but prefered surprisingly small cigars, Swiss-made Villigers (like your good self).

PINK FLOYD LYRICS
"Have A Cigar"

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar.
You're gonna go far, fly high,
You're never gonna die, you're gonna make it if you try;they're gonna love you.
Well I've always had a deep respect, and I mean that most sincerely.
The band is just fantastic, that is really what I think.
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.
We're just knocked out.
We heard about the sell out.
You gotta get an album out,
You owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.
Everybody else is just green, have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start, it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team.
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

:D;)

Great tune

Good on Pavarotti, by the way!

This clip (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=wF6wgqNtxq8) is interesting about cigars and playing.

Of course! The Buena Vista crew! Ry Cooder joins in in the film. People go up in my estimation when they fire up!

Billy Connolly? I didn't know that!

Dave Hattee... OK...

And yourself!

I had only started to feel like a good cigar 'poseur' just before the smoking ban in public places so was fed up when I couldn't play that game in breaks at gigs any more! ;)
