Keith Richards: `I Snorted My Father’

LONDON (AP) – 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.

 Truth is stranger than fiction!  Apparently the “winner” of the “weirdest thing I’ve snorted” prior to Keith Richards confession went to Ozzy Osbourne, who apparently during a particularly mellow trip outside on a deck lounger on his stomach saw a line of ants and decided to give them a try.

I’m proud to be drug free, and not talented at all in music. . . hahahaha

April Fools? Richards denies snorting ashes

Spokesman says Stones’ guitarist was joking in magazine interview

LONDON – Keith Richards was joking when he claimed to have snorted his father’s ashes along with cocaine, a spokesman said Wednesday.

“It was an off-the-cuff remark, a joke, and it is not true. File under April Fool’s joke,” said Bernard Doherty of LD Communications, which represents the Rolling Stones.

Doherty declined to say any more about why Richards made the statement in an interview with NME, a pop music magazine.

“The strangest thing I’ve tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father,” the 63-year-old guitarist was quoted as saying.

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

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

I still think rock stars are stranger than fiction, even if their stories are fiction 😉

MSNBC is now saying that this was told to the reporter as an April Fool’s joke, it wasn’t real….

I think its more a a case of “Oops he wasn’t supposed to print THAT”

It’s still hilarious
