The 40 Most Ratchet Music Rumors

13. Keith Richards Snorted His Dad's Ashes

Most of us love our parents, but how far would we go to stay close to them after they're dead? In 2007 Keith Richards joked that after the death and cremation of his father, Bert, in 2002, he mixed his dad's ashes with cocaine and snorted him up. Coming from anybody else it would have seemed far-fetched, but with the Rolling Stones guitarist-who had quite a reputation for partying hard-it was almost believable. Richards would later tell 60 Minutes that he planned to sprinkle his father's remains under an English oak tree but when he opened the urn a few ashes drifted onto the table. "I wouldn't eat him, but I snorted him," Richards said. "He's on the table-what was I gonna do? Brush him off?"
