Keith Richards: “I snorted my father.”

Quote of the day, week, fortnight, month, year, decade, etc.

“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.”

Now that’s filial piety.

UPDATE: Keith admits that he was joking when he said this. Doesn’t matter. A) Still a great quote. B) Given Keith’s rep which will linger in the public memory, the story or the truth?
