Stones star ‘snorted dad’s ashes’

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has claimed he snorted the ashes of his late father during a drugs binge.

“He was cremated and I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow,” he told NME. Richards’ father, Bert, died at the age of 84 in 2002.

But Jane Rose, Richards’ manager, told MTV News the claim was “said in jest”.

Sixty-three-year-old Richards also told NME of his disdain for modern bands, calling Arctic Monkeys, The Libertines and Bloc Party “a load of crap”.
