It sounds strange even in Italian

"Ho sniffato le ceneri di mio padre" --Keith Richards
Keith Richards appears in the press room of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, March 12, 2007, in New York. Richards was a presenter.  Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top them all.  In comments published Tuesday, April 3, 2007, the 63-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist said he had snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.  'The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father,' Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME. (AP Photo/Stuart Ramson)
Keith Richards: 'I snorted my father'
And I don't even speak Italian.

UPDATE: Keith has recanted. He now says it was a jest. On the down side, he still looks like the love child of Charles Bronson and a bulldog's butt.

Yes, but he is aging well.

Is this how we'd look if all of us drank preservatives?

I'm just impressed that he is still alive. What were the odds of that happening? Jiim Morrison, dead. Mama Cass Elliot, dead. Keith Moon, dead. Keith Richards....still kicking? And you know he snorted his dad.
