Richards got stoned on dad’s ashes, coke

first_imgKeith Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top 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. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
