Stones guitarist: 'I snorted my father'
Maybe the best headline ever, brought to you by Keith Richards:
"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father. He was cremated, and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow," Richards said in the interview, which was posted on NME's Web site.
"My dad wouldn't have cared," Richards said, adding, "It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."
Also in the article is him bashing some modern bands:
"Everyone's a load of crap," he said. "They are trying to be somebody else and they ain't being themselves. Libertines, Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party? Load of crap, load of crap. Posers, rubbish."
I'm not sure how that's any different than the Stones emulating Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley back in the day, but I guess it's stupid of me to point out logical inconsistencies to a guy who snorted his dad.
Update: aw man, it's apparently not true.
