Which legendary musician claims to have snorted his father’s cremated ashes?
Keith Richards is best known as a guitarist and founder member of the Rolling Stones. In an April 2007 interview, music journalist Mark Beaumont asked Richards what the strangest thing he ever snorted was, and quoted him as replying: “My father. I snorted my father. 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.” Musician Jay Farrar from the band Son Volt wrote a song titled “Cocaine And Ashes”, which was inspired by Richards’ drug habits.
The correct answer is Keith Richards.
