Keith Richards: `I Snorted My Father'
By Associated Press
4 hours ago



LONDON - Keith Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top them all. In comments published Tuesday, the 63-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist said he had snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.

"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME.

"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared," he said. "... It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."

Richards' father, Bert, died in 2002, at 84.

Richards, one of rock's legendary wild men, told the magazine that his survival was the result of luck, and advised young musicians against trying to emulate him.

"I did it because that was the way I did it. Now people think it's a way of life," he was quoted as saying.

"I've no pretensions about immortality," he added. "I'm the same as everyone ... just kind of lucky.

"I was No. 1 on the `who's likely to die' list for 10 years. I mean, I was really disappointed when I fell off the list," Richards said.

Yeah, but he was OK, 'cause he landed on his head!

His dad must've been quite the character also being Keith claims his father wouldn't have cared if he was snorted. I think my old man would see it differently.

Apparently he was also quoted in the same interview as saying that some time ago he was once told by a doctor that he only had 6 months to live, he has since attended said doctor's funeral!

Gotta love him, he's a true rock 'n' roll legend :cool:

And that kids, is a bad advert for drugs, it's NOT big and it's NOT clever!!!

... which is to say; Ozzy never snorted no ants, and he sure as hell didn't bite the head off a bat. If you believe any of that ****, you well and truly deserve the benighted life that certain schlockmeisters want you to have!

Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your wrong!
Ozzy did Bite the head off of not one but two doves while drunk at a record comp meeting and did bite the head off a bat on stage cause he thought it was rubber and had to get rabies shots. At the Moscow peace Fest he and Nikki Sixx were trying to out gross each other. Nikki drank his own pee so Ozzy drank some of nikki's pee too and then hit the ground and started snorting live ants. Its True!!

Yes, Keef has said that he was only speaking in 'jest' when he made that statement. Ah well. Rock and Roll is about its heros and no hero is bigger than the legend they create. Much like my man, HST. He found after years and years of trying that he could never live up to the legend of himself! :D

I'd never snort my dad, because I'd get all dad-high and run around starting these really weak arguments. Who needs that?

Oh yeah, I read this. Under that article it also stated that Freddy Mercury would have naked dwarves carrying plates of cocain at his parties. Ahhhh, it must be great to be that rich. :D
