So sorry for the EXTREME procrastination on this one…
Welcome to the “Smokin’ Hot” episode where we focus on cigars & the musicians that love them too! Join us as we spark one up & sit down to chat about the musicians who enjoy a good stogie, songs about cigars, & those who may not enjoy the stogies as much as the box! Intrigued??? Stream the episode anywhere you listeno to your favorite podcasts & follow along with us below!
This is what happens when we forget to take a pic after recording… Ozzy & I are left to our own devices.

According to all mighty Google, the best cigar pairing with Crown Royal Apple would be some type of Maduro cigar.
Some examples include: Illusione CG4 White Horse, Arturo Fuente God of Fire by Don Carlos, & Arturo Fuente Hemmingway Work of Art Maduro
As for the Jameson Caskmates Whiskey, a great cigar pairing mentioned would be a Casa de Garcia.
Some of my current favorites that I am sharing & telling my friends about are the Rocky Patel/Drew Estate Java cigars & the Deadwood Tobacco cigars (my personal favorite being the Sweet Jane.)
Some musicians that we thought may smoke cigars but, don’t. Chris Stapleton, Amy Whinehouse, Nathaniel Rateliff, John Cougar Mellencamp, & Frank Sinatra (After googling a bit more, I did find the below pic of him with Marlon Brando with cigars in hand.)
It took me longer to post this episode & show notes than I had expected to procrastinate on it… ANYWAYS! If you’re into Rock N Roll &/or curious about Moon Fever (the band I mentioned I was going to see) check out my review of the show HERE! I also dropped the video/song I played for Alex & Kim below!
Avril is BAAAAACCCKK!!!!! Check out Mod Sun’s single “Flames” ft. Avril Lavigne from his new album Internet Killed The Rock Star!

I didn’t find where Bowie had a favorite cigar brand but, he did like the torpedo shaped cigars!
If a Monte Cristo is good enough for The King.. Its good enough for me. I’ll just tell my bank account that Elvis would approve to justify such a purchase!

Nick Jonas sparked up some controversy with the fans about being on the cover of Cigar Aficionado. Cohibas are his favorite even though some of his fans find this to be “gross & irresponsible.”
Rihanna – Enjoys her brothers line of luxury Legado cigars when not puffing on an Arturo Fuente Exquisitos, Cohiba, or Romeo y Julieta. You can even catch her tokin’ up with Shakira in their “Can’t Remember To Forget You” video!
