Snort! Keith Richards Was Joking About Dad's Ashes

In an interview with the British music mag NME, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards claimed that the craziest thing the hard-partying rocker ever snorted was his cremated father's ashes mixed with cocaine, saying, "I couldn't resist grinding him up with a bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared." Too crazy to be true, right? Indeed. A rep for the Stones tells the Associated Press, "It was an off-the-cuff remark, a joke, and it is not true. File it under 'April Fool's Joke.'" Previously, the tale was filed under "Ick, Ptooey!"
