He might have lived a life of rock and roll, but Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has certainly not let the lifestyle affect his dental health, as he shows off his teeth on an outing in New York this week. The rock legend, who turns 70 later this year, has spent most of his life smoking, taking drugs, and drinking alcohol, but he seems determined to maintain a healthy-looking smile and beamed for the cameras when he was pictured at a Broadway show at the Al Hirshfield Theatre on Wednesday night.
Dressed casually with a scarf around his head and a huge hoop earring through one ear, Richards was obviously comfortable in his rocker attire and flashed his youthful smile at waiting photographers. The bright, white teeth are a far cry from the rotten, brown smile that Richards sported during his youth, thanks to a hedonistic lifestyle that noticeably affected his dental health; band mate Ronnie Wood revealed that the rock star once repaired a broken tooth using superglue.
Although he didn’t seem too worried about his appearance in the past, Richards might be looking to work on dental problems as the band continue playing and entertaining crowds all over the world. The Rolling Stones are currently preparing for a 10-day series of concerts and events labelled British Summer Time, that will begin July 6th and attendance is expected to be around 500,000.
