Keith Richards snorts Dad's ashes...or snot?!



Keith Richards (of 'The Rolling Stones' fame) snorted his dad Bert's ashes, along with some cocaine. At least that's what he initially told an NME Magazine reporter when asked what was the worst time he'd had on drugs:
" worst time I've had on drugs was... When someone put strychnine in my dope "It was in Switzerland. I was totally comatose, but I was totally awake, I could listen to everyone, and they were like, 'He's dead, he's dead!' waving their fingers and pushing me about, and I was thinking, 'I'm not dead!'. So that's sort of the worst one. But I got out of that, I mean otherwise I wouldn't be talking to you. But yeah, bad shit is bad shit. The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father. 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."

Of course, he now denies it, saying it was just a joke and he was merely trying to indicate how "tight" he and Bert were, but truth or not: major Ick!! What would possess someone to do that? I understand feeling close, I adore my dad, but ewwwwwww. It's a little akin to cannibalism, and maybe that's why he decided to fess up and clarify. But even if it was a joke, it's creepily NOT funny.

And doesn't he look much older than his 63 years? Maybe the ashes didn't kill him, but along with the blow, looks like they added a few cracks and crevices to his face.

The stones are so far past their prime that it is a wonder that they can gather any kind of an audience. I Guess their audience is as old and stoned as they are. Most of the age wrinkles is due to exposure to the sun. Druggies get gaunt and puffy faced. How can anyone believe anything they say no matter who/what they snort. MUD

I believe Keef did it. It is so in keeping with his persona. lets face it we will miss him when he is gone, he is an icon of a bygone era. James Brown, Little Richard, Elvis, only a few grow to legendary status in their own lifetimes.

It's that whole nostalgia thing, MUD. Well, a dissolute life also ages one quickly. and he's certainly had that.

And I tend to think he did, as well, BCF. I dunno.. I have a really hard time watching them.. something just a tad dark... but, they certainly are legends in the music field.

Just one too many dead brain cells..

Interesting data, no matter what we imagine, there is always a rock star who goes further, and there´s always a fucking republican who prefers to talk about it than to look at his own belly...

Well, Anon, though I don't expect you to visit again...
this f**ing republican always looks at her "own" belly... and is willing to change. and for the record, though I did smoke pot and drink alot in my youth, I now no longer do. at least I've saved enough of my brain cells to think clearly.
