'I snorted my father,' Keith Richards says

LONDON, April 3 (UPI) -- Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards didn't snort a line of cocaine with his dad, he snorted a line of his dad, the hard partying British rocker said.

Richards, in an interview with the British music magazine NME, said he gave his dad an unusual send-off after his cremation in 2002.


"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," Richards told the magazine. "He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow.

He said his pop wouldn't have cared. "It went down pretty well," Richards said, "and I'm still alive."
