    Wow....that is crazy!



    I thought it mean he smelled his father, or when up to his father and made a shorting noise...that was before I read the headline.

    Ditto...

    Can you think of what House would say, if he was told this story?

    I'm a crazy fan of House M.D.

    No, I thought this would be cocaine related.......something weird and cocaine related.

    this reminds me of the Robin Williams broadway show where he rants about Keith being the only other thing alive besides cockroaches in a nuclear war. :p

    Also funny is that the interviewer asked, "What's the strangest thing you've tried to snort?"

    Wouldn't that technically make him a cannibal?

    I remember Keith's recount of how the song "Satisfaction" came to be. "I woke in the middle of the night with this rift running through my head. I thought up a few words, got out of bed, picked up the guitar and played. There were about 45 minutes of me snoring afterwards".

    Annie Lebowitz has a great picture of Keith laying passed-out on the floor. His zipper is half-way down. When I saw it, I wondered, "Did he make it to the bathroom or not?"

    Nothing surprises me about Keith. He is the original British Rock 'bad-boy'. I must admit, I love him!

    My guess: "Get your nose out of your father's ash", or something to that effect.

    You did see Keith Richards in the title, didn't you? I knew exactly what it meant when I saw it... :/

    Um... Again... This is Keith Richards we're talking about. :D

    this reminds me of an episode of Six Feet Under (where some mourners do the same thing)

    Not exactly my idea of keeping a person with you but to each their own, eh?

    Snort as I say, not snort as I do?

    Or Richards is ironcially protective of himself -- "snort that, but don't snort me" etc.

    :p :p :p Keef still one of the coolest cats around.

    Somehow I can't quite imagine McCartney saying the same.

    Strange!

    But saw an episode of Miami Ink the other day where a surfer who lost his mate to cancer, had some of his mates ashes put in the ink before Garver tattooed him. Thought that was pretty cool!

    Dennis Leary used to do a sequence about Keef telling people not to do drugs, (Keef did anti-drugs commercials a while back), the upshot was that Leary said we can't do drugs now because Keef's done all of them and we'll have to wait for him to die and snort his ashes....

    Life and art, art and life.

    Keef's a god, a wrinkly god sure, but a god nontheless.

    his people are now trying to say that Keith was only kidding... that he really never snorted his fathers ashes with the chunky white lady... ;)

    Idiot. :rolleyes:

    Of course, I've never been a fan of the Rolling Stones.
