Call me naive but I actually thought maybe Keith had slowed down in his old age. I'd assumed upon reading the article that he'd snorted his dad back in the 70's or 80's. Nope, 2002.

I wonder how old Keith's dad was, 120? I mean Keith's what, like 94?

Somewhere in the house I have a W magazine with photos of his daughters with Patti Hansen. They're very pretty. It's a good thing they look like their mother!

You've gotta be real careful with this stuff. I bought what I thought was a bag of Keith Richard's dad in back in 1987, turned out it was a bag of the bass player in Loverboy's uncle. I woke up 3 days later in Beth Israel.

Just say no.

/Thanks. I'm here all week.

Do you people honestly believe he was serious when he said that? True, this IS Keith Richards here, and anything is possible, but I'm pretty sure he was joking around--in a creepy, dirty kind of way.

I just spit up chunks of the father of the lead singer of Honeymoon Suite all over my keyboard.

Well played.

Not at all shocked by this. The only surprising thing isn't that he snorted his dad... It's that he didn't EAT his dad. I mean, c'mon, most of us have known that KR has been undead for years...

Kieth is dying.

This is the same feeling as when I heard Johnny Cash's "The Man" a couple years ago.

This is his "piece de resistance" before he leaves us. One last defiant act to show all the poseurs with their bling-bling and guns and posses and skull-bongs and chancres how a true rock'n'roll life should be lived. And I, for one, am quite impressed. Well Done.

Long live Keith.

You know, there's a tribe in South America that mixes the ashes of their dead into a soup and eats it...

So if this is the strangest thing he has ever snorted, it seems he must have put some other pretty weird substances in his nose as well. I am curious to know what else would make the top five...

This is not a new idea - way back in the seventies, jazz musician Rhasan Roland Kirk requested in his will that he be cremated, mixed into a bag of weed, and distributed to his friends for consumption. Whether or not it was ever done, I don't know.
At any rate, my feeling is that Keef is having a little fun with us here. But, who knows. The guy is really a trip. He's sort of gone all the way through and popped out the other side, so to speak. Physically, he's become so thoroughly wretched that he's achieved a sort of weird grandeur.

The day Keef actually does die will be a sad and sobering moment for many. He's right, he is just lucky.

Party on, Keef

Thank you I am honored to be the subject of your Boobies.

Now you have broken your cherry, may I suggest you try calling FlashLV or Bevets names because of their political and religious beleifs? It's a lot of fun, we do it all the time.

Now he's denying it...saying it was an April Fool's Joke

Richards Denies Snorting His Dad's Ashes
Apr 4 12:01 PM US/Eastern


LONDON (AP) - 0404xRichards Keith Richards was joking when he claimed to have snorted his father's ashes along with cocaine, a spokesman said Wednesday.

"It was an off-the-cuff remark, a joke, and it is not true. File under April Fool's joke," said Bernard Doherty of LD Communications, which represents the Rolling Stones.

Doherty declined to say any more about why Richards made the statement in an interview with NME, a pop music magazine.

"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," the 63-year-old guitarist was quoted as saying.

"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."

Richards' father, Bert, died in 2002, at 84.
