Keith: I snorted my father
Posted by: Rip This ()

OK...well here's the article from AP wire services so it's legit.............



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.

I think it's touching. Now wherever Keith goes, a little part of his dad will always be with him.

Yeah, it's a bit off-putting to hear that he did this just years ago---in 2002. During Licks...

I would've said Keith wasn't doing hard stuff like blow anymore--not to mention sniffin up his father! Sounds like something he would've done in the 70's or 80's but only like 5 years ago? I'm a bit dissapointed.

i don't think he should admit it in public like that - it just sets him up for more people to make fun of him. he wears his heart on his sleeve.

And a bit of his dad on his nostril, apparently.

I can't imagine Keef without the Booze but I sure wish he could leave pills and powders alone.

He should take the advice of his rasta buddies and stick to the green when the vodka + oj isn't working for him.

I'm tired, I'm tired of doing what I'm told.
Things are moving way too slow.

I think Keith may have said it.....ok, he DID say it but I bet he's yanking our chains!! Was it an April Fool's day interview? If he really did that, it's GROSS even for KEITH!

Do you think it created a Bert Booger or did he blow his nose or sneeze his daddy out? I wonder what he did with his mom? drank her? (no he didn't eat her)

Seriously....does this really surprise anybody that much?

If it's true - It's not funny.
If it's a joke - It's not a particularly funny one.

There is no upside to this story.
It don't make me like the Stones any less...

But really, this is not Rock and Roll - this is really sick

really sick.

I am willing to bet it is just Keith humor, remember the notorious "I get my blood changed in Switzerland" one? some others as well. He probably is just testing peoples gullibility.

It's not a joke because 10 news sites already have the story up. type in Keith Richards in yahoo and click news and you get 10 news sites already having the story up.

Yeah Keith did himself no favours by popping off with this one. It's in ALL
the news stories here in the US.

I imagine his father is looking down from Heaven and appreciating getting mixed
in with a load of Coke...

Re: Keith: I snorted my father

sounds like its edited.

i'm sure it was a stupid answer to a totally dumb question.

The strangest thing i ever snorted was some sea monkeys

Posted at 4:03PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by Rick

18. There are some things that are just WRONG and this is one of them. I just saw a recent photo of Richards and his eyes look both possessed and dead. It's like looking into the eyes of darkness. I think I know now why that is....SICK! This guy is NOT cool. Stop thinking that just because Keith likes to tread on the thin line of sanity that he's cool or cutting edge. If he weren't a musician, he'd be in a nut house or dead!!!

Posted at 4:03PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by JCT

19. That is so gross. Really people are that crazy? Even mixed with some blow there is no way in hell I could snort someone's ashes.

26. That's just sick... Why would anyone do that to themselves and the ashes of a family member... He said his father wouldn't care... I bet he would... Freakin' sick person... I would be ashamed if I were his kids..

35. I can't believe he is still alive. Of course he looks like he died and someone forgot to tell him!

Posted at 4:21PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by BB

36. I seriously doubt that he did this.

Posted at 4:22PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by brijett

37. brijett,
I believe it. I mean.....look at him. He looks like he'll try anything once.

38. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted at 4:28PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by Chill

39. Keith is the man! I'm listening to the Stones right now! "I say come on down/come on down sweet Virginia...." actually met him once in Washington DC when i was staying at the Hotel Madera (http://www.reservediscountrooms.com/washington-dc/hotel-madera---a-kimpton-hotel.html). I didn't understand a word he said. Be was really cool!

Posted at 4:31PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by Iggy

40. Wow! That's like the most bizarre thing I've ever heard in my life. But it sort of is a kewl way to keep your loved one near. Maybe this will catch on. They could make coffee bar type places where you can read TMZ on your laptop and snort up Grandma at the same time.

42. This is disgusting---Keith Richards, you are a sick, disgusting, mental moron. I don't think much has sickened me more in life. I hope your father got more respect than this from you in his lifetime.

Posted at 4:43PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by Janet

43. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of in my life. Not only should you completely be ashamed of yourself, I would never have told anyone about that. You are such a loser.

Posted at 4:44PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by Donna

44. Only a white guy would snort his dad!

Posted at 4:48PM on Apr 3rd 2007 by rusty
