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.

That's crazy. I've heard that human ashes are really course, sharp, and rock like.

That's what you get when you ask Keith Richards a question you really don't want the answer to.

Is that moustache he's sporting a side effect of recreational patriarchial ingestion?

a friend of mine was cremated and his mother gave out some of his ashes to some of his close friends and they all got tattoos (including his mom) with his ashes mixed in with the ink. i still have mine. i'd rather have the ashes than a tattoo.

have a friend who lives above a funeral home and has the run of the place. it's amazing how many ashes are never picked up. if you wanna snort remains, i'll hook you up. paypal will be fine.

My old man wanted to be cremated but my brother wanted him buried. I said do whatcha want, so they cremated him, and a few months later, they had a second funeral and buried his ashes, like he was some sorta vampire! Families are weird... but Keef is possibly weirder...
Posted: Apr 4, 2007 12:01 pm
I mean, bury OR burn, innit? Same as burn or snort, rite?
Posted: Apr 4, 2007 12:27 pm
moustache he's sporting

He looks like Scumfuc era GG Allin in that picture. I didn't think that Richards was doing blow as recently as five years ago and at the advanced age of 58 no less...

He's been pulling journo's legs for 40 years....and they keep printing it.

I wonder if snorting someone's ashes makes you absorb the powers and intelligence of the dead person, y'know, kind of like that Syler dude on Heroes.

Maybe that's why Keith's still alive???

"The truth of the matter is that I planted a sturdy English Oak."

"I took the lid off the box of ashes and he is now growing oak trees and would love me for it!"

Coincidentally, I was at a bar last night and a really drunk chick said "look at this guys" and pulled something out of her shirt, and spilled something that looked like coke on herself, and so this other girl went to go snort it off the first chicks shirt. Then the chick goes "NO! YOU ARE ABOUT TO SNORT MY MOM!" Turns out she had her moms ashes in a little vial in her shirt. Needless to say, I almost died laughing.
