On his official social media account, The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has shared an unseen photo of himself with his dad Bert, who passed away at the age of 84 in 2002.
In the caption area, Keith wrote a simple message to celebrate Fathers Day of his dad and also shared that Max Vadukul took the photo in 1997.
“Happy Fathers Day!”
On the other hand, the photo reminds us of the crazy story that Keith snorted his father’s ashes after his death. A fan commented:
“Didn’t you snort him?”
Back in May 2011, Keith spoke in an interview with Blender and confirmed that he snorted his father’s ashes. He said:
“I opened my dad’s ashes, and some of them blew out over the table, just because of the suction of the lid, you know what I mean? I looked at my dad’s ashes down there and – what am I going to do? “Do I desecrate them with a dustbin and broom? So I wet me [sic] finger, and I shoved a little bit of Dad up me[sic] hooter.
The rest of them I put round an oak tree, which is coming up a treat. And I’m sure he’s still blessing me.”
