Keith Richards’ ‘snorting dad’ joke

By Isabelle on April 5th, 2007

A few days ago Keith Richards told the NME he once mixed his dad’s ashes in with a bit of chang and snorted him. The piratic rock star said: "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." Apparently it was all a joke and Richards explained to what actually happened to the ashes "The truth of the matter is that I planted a sturdy English Oak. "I took the … ashes [and sprinkled them beneath the tree], and he is now growing oak trees and he would love me for it!" He added: "I wouldn’t take cocaine at this point in my life, unless I wished to commit suicide." Looks like Keef has got more in common with Alan Titchmarsh than Jimi Hendrix nowadays.
