Keith Richards: "I Snorted My Father"

4/3/2007 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Keith RichardsThere's very little in the physical world that Keith Richards hasn't, by his own admission, ingested either by mouth or by nose -- including, it seems, his father's ashes.

The Rolling Stones axeman revealed to NME, the British music magazine, that he once snorted the remains of his own dad, Bert, leavened with a bit of cocaine to make it go down easier. "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," says Keith.

Bert died in 2002 at the age of 84. Richards has four children of his own, and will play Johnny Depp's dad in the forthcoming third installment of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series.

This just proves that for sons and daughters, knowledge really is powder.

There are some things that are just WRONG and this is one of them. I just saw a recent photo of Richards and his eyes look both possessed and dead. It's like looking into the eyes of darkness. I think I know now why that is....SICK! This guy is NOT cool. Stop thinking that just because Keith likes to tread on the thin line of sanity that he's cool or cutting edge. If he weren't a musician, he'd be in a nut house or dead!!!

Says everything, don't it ? Now, back to Coward, i hate him so much. He better not hurt that baby; let us unite in thought ; Howard Kevin Stern You don't have a prayer. Give her to her family; You are not her family. You have already given DRUGS to her via ANNA NICOLE. Howard, you gave drugs to an unborn fetus; You may have caused Dannielynn life-long health and mental problems. YOU DID THAT and laughed at VICKI Lynn while you were filming her; Talk about , CAUGHT ON TAPE ! YOu are your own Worst enemy !
Imagine Dannielynn's chances in the future with YOU for a dad? It's RIDICULOUS> She won't want to be seen with you, when she learns the TRUTH about you. What will she think when Dannielynn sees the CLOWN TRAGic footage of you > SHE WILL DESPISE YOU < JUST LIKE EVERY One IN THE WORLD DOES< AAARGH!!!!
