However, as the footage shows, Smith stood up on his own and walked into the local bar to have a pint. To which bar patrons began saying “ Keep Calm and Have a Pint .” Smith, 53, was crossing Gun Street…

Just as Mick Jagger of the Stones so poignantly summarized, “There is no future in rock ‘n roll music, it is all only recycled past.” Steve Jobs marketing genius was in seeing the brilliance of Nike, in showcasing star athletes of the 80s such as Michael Jordan, John McEnroe, and Lester Hayes, and slapping their logo next to them.
