Keith Richards Snorts Dad In Rolling Stones Gonzo Snuff Movie

by | 27th, October 2010

KEITH Richards, of the Rolling Stones, says in his memoirs Life that his did snort his dad Bert’s ashes:

“The truth of the matter is that after having Dad’s ashes in a black box for six years, because I really couldn’t bring myself to scatter him to the winds, I finally planted a sturdy English oak to spread him around.

“And as I took the lid off of the box, a fine spray of his ashes blew out on to the table. I couldn’t just brush him off so I wiped my finger over it and snorted the residue.

“Ashes to ashes, father to son. He is now growing oak trees and would love me for it.”

So. Keith inhaled his dad. And Ronnie Wood smoked meringues:

“It got to the point where I would be on my hands and knees looking for crumbs that might have fallen out of the crack pipe. I even banned my children eating meringues in the house after I ended up smoking sugar, believing it to be cocaine.”

The Rolling Stones seem unable to move on from their drugged-out heyday. Wood inhales his meals. Richards turns his dad into a kind of gonzo snuff movie. Will bill Wyman’s memoirs tell of a barbecue sauce enema while Charlie Watts mistakes an LSD tab for a Nicotine patch?

And lastly, anybody buying Richards’ memoirs can recall this quotes from the musician:

“I can’t even remember yesterday”…

A huge crowd waits patiently in Hyde Park, London, several hours before the start of an afternoon concert by the Rolling Stones. Many had camped all night, singing to guitars.
