Well I've seen a video of Eric Clapton doing it way before either of them.

Richards probably got there first. In the Cretaceous period.

Will that man ever die or will he simply slowly mummify?

Btw, he got done for smoking in public in Edinburgh, I think it was, when he had a fag in his headstock.

I doubt a famous player was the first to do it. I'd say it was done pretty much the same time as the electric guitar was introduced.

I remember seeing clapton and jack bruce having cigarettes in their instruments (cream, 1968 around that time) so they may have been the first

I do it sometime s>.> Wut? I got it form my guitar teacher when we jammed acoustics on the couch passing joitns back and forth.

Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix were the first to do it, but its pretty much been arouind ever since someone smoked before playing guitar

Yeah, Jack Bruce in that "Sunshine of your love" video, probably around 1968 when it was released.

First time I saw it at a gig was Eric Sardinas, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't some old blues man back in the 30's or something.

a hand rolled cigarette maybe, but not a joint, Roger Waters didn't really do drugs unless he felt compelled to for social reasons.

As for the cigarette thing, I've seen seen old pictures of bluesmen doing it in the 40s, I've done before but usually I just keep the cigarette in my mouth, like Slash.
