Keith Richards said he chopped powder cocaine with ashes from his father’s cremated body and snorted the mixture, according to an interview appearing in NME.
The Rolling Stones’ guitar legend Keith Richards has revealed that he once snorted a line of his own dad’s ashes.
Speaking exclusively in this week’s NME, the star, notorious for his decades of substance abuse, admitted he gave his old man a unique send off after his cremation.
He said: “The strangest thing I’ve tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father. He was cremated and I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow.
