Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones fame Snorted his Dad’s Ashes … Hey Keith … TMI


File this one under this weeks WTF category. I think we have a winner. The following story, KeithRichardseven for Keith Richards, is way out there and probably too much information … way too much TMI. Keith Richards states that he snorted his father’s ashes during a drug binge. WOW. Why does this not surprise me? The only thing that does actually shock me is that he actually has the brain cells to remember the incident. Nothing shocks me anymore when it comes to celebrities, other than their continued idolization.

The Rolling Stones guitarist has told how he snorted his own father’s ashes in a drugs binge.

“The strangest thing I’ve tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father,” he said.

The 63-year-old detailed in a magazine interview how he mixed the ashes with cocaine and inhaled them.

He was cremated and I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow.

“My dad wouldn’t have cared – he didn’t give a s***. It went down pretty well. And I’m still alive.” (Daily Mail)

      That’s pretty sick. He could actually live in Aruba doing crap like that.

    6. Observer on April 3rd, 2007 11:26 pm

      The scary thing is it sounds like he has snorted worse things :(

      Freud would have a great time with this.

      One wonders if the famed musician finally got some satisfaction.

      Do you ever wonder what these ppl are thinking when they are strung out, could it be that Keith is infamous for his drug use and his age, that he fabricated this, for that shock effect?

    10. dennisintn on April 4th, 2007 11:26 am

      just think about how whacked out his mind was when he thought that little tale was going to favorably impress anyone. he’d probably do very well on aruba. he could easily win elections with his clear thoughts on everything.

    11. Hmmmm on April 4th, 2007 11:52 am

      Whoa – I always thought and the picture you posted confirms – Keith Richards is absolutely 100% butt-ugly.

    12. Carpe Noctem on April 4th, 2007 12:01 pm

      If they cremate him they better dispose
      of him at sea! If anyone makes the fatal
      mistake of smoking his ashes, they’re gonna
      be higher than the freakin’ Goodyear Blimp
      over the Superbowl.

      How DOES he do it?


    13. mayan_moons on April 4th, 2007 12:31 pm

      lol Carpe!

      thats a very good question!

    14. mayan_moons on April 4th, 2007 12:32 pm

      didn’t he fall out of a tree recently?

    15. slogmonster on April 4th, 2007 1:26 pm

      MSN is now saying that Keith denies actually doing it and that it was a joke.

      Not a very funny one if you ask me.

      Aprils Fool Joke?///

    18. Joanie on April 4th, 2007 10:05 pm

      I believe it is called “damage control’! Ya know; my sister is 56 and she thinks Keith Richards is great! She thought the STONES Superbowl preformance was great several years ago too. Yes; the STONES were GREAT at one time – now they all need to retire……TO A FUNNY FARM!!!!!!!

      Does anyone really think Keith Richards has any brain cells left to actually remember anything?

      I think its safe to say that the old short and long term memory are a thing of the past. Up in smoke or his nose.

    20. Hmmmm on April 5th, 2007 8:39 am

      When he passes the old guy’s ashes should be treated like a toxic waste site…

    21. Carpe Noctem on April 5th, 2007 10:04 am

      I wonder if it smelled like potpourri?

    22. slogmonster on April 5th, 2007 1:25 pm

      #19 Red, I have no idea how his memory is. I’m one of those that love the music but this last stunt whether true or false makes me kinda ill.
      I’m disallusioned. :(

    23. slogmonster on April 5th, 2007 1:26 pm

      Oops, disillusioned rather.

    24. Carpe Noctem on April 5th, 2007 4:14 pm

      He is so totally the poster child
      of what happens to you when you do not
      eat properly from all the major food

    25. Tammy on April 10th, 2007 2:16 pm

      I don’t think the proper food groups will help him much!
