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.

And that, for those of you playing along at home, is what makes Keith, Keef.

A few years ago, novelist Kathryn Harrison, wrote a book in which she accidently snorts her grandmother's ashes.

Nevertheless, you may have been punked.

Yeah, and some of you complain about Michael Jackson, who isn't even as close to being this WEIRD.

Actually, when you stop and think about it most folks don't have any time for their parents and hardly visit with them. In the most truly twisted way possible Keith really is the best son of all time. Happy Father's Day you old geezer.
