In 2007, Keith Richards made international headlines when he told New Musical Express that he had mixed his dad’s ashes with cocaine and snorted them. He later claimed the remark was taken out of context, and his reps denied it. But in his autobiography ‘Life,’ the guitarist confirmed that he did, indeed, snort dear old dad — but not mixed with cocaine. Richards claimed that some of his father’s ashes blew onto a table while he was trying to spread them, and rather than just brush the residue off, he opted to stick his finger in the residue and snort it, which is a relief — ’cause, y’know, now that he’s explained it, that’s not at all creepy.
