Keith Richards On Dad: "He Was Piquant, With A Hint Of Oak and Delightful Fruity Undertones"

Duuuuuude! This one time, Keith Richards totally snorted his dad's ashes--far out! From the Associated Press:
Keith Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top them all.

In comments published Tuesday, the 63-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist said he had snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.

"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME.

"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared," he said. "... It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."

Richards' father, Bert, died in 2002, at 84.

Hrmmm...yes, well, I don't really have too much to say about this--it kind of speaks for itself, really--except that I wonder if somewhere out there Johnny Depp is already engaging in "character research" for "Pirates of the Caribbean IV: Dead Man's Ashes."
