Papa Is a Rolling Stone

UPDATE: Jane Rose, long-time manager of Keith Richards, in an email alleges, "Said in jest: Can't believe anyone took seriously." Would one expect her to say otherwise?

Rolling Stones legend and survivor Keith Richards bemoaned that he was no longer on the list of "who's likely to die." (He said that he was No. 1 for a decade.) The sixty-three-year-old Richards stated that he was lucky and warned younger wannabees not to ape him. The worldly wise, wizened wizard of rock shared the oddest drug concoction that he had inhaled. He said, "The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father." He added, "He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow: My dad wouldn't have cared . . . [and] it went down pretty well." I guess a bit of his dad is blowing in the wind as well.
