View Full Version : i snorted my father

4th April 07, 10:24 AM
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.

When I clicked this thread, I was soooo sure it was gonna be more fantastic tales of the snorty exploits of Cracy McSlughoot.

Bet he'll be out digging up relatives after reading this.

I think Cracky still comes out ahead on this....i'm pretty sure the slug he smoked was still alive. KR just snorted some ashes.

Unless the slug was his father reincarnated (which, if Cracky Senior was anything like his son, is entirely possible), I still say Mr. Richards takes the cake.

We had my father cremated .... fast foward 3 years, Ma finally decides to lay whats left of him to rest . Being a naval man, we decided to throw his ashes into the ocean @ their fav seaside town.

I should of been warned by the giggling from the deckhand and the captain guy biting his lip ..... When I tipped dad into the ocean from one side of the boat, ma tipped her mother in from the other side. The wind felt fresh and biting in my face as I released pop .... who promptly coated me .

Was an odd feeling ... was in my nose, could taste it in my mouth and took 2 showers till I was convinced I was devoid of his ash .

^^^^^Why watching The Big Lebowski should be mandatory for anyone with loved ones wishing to be cremated.

Using his dad on an icey driveway I could understand.
