Keith Richards Wants His Children To Snort His Ashes (Video)

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards wants his grown daughters, Theodora and Alexandra, to snort his ashes after he passes away. He made the bizarre admission only days before the new documentary "Keith Richards: Under the Influence" premieres on Netflix (video below).

“I’ll give them a straw," the 71-year-old rocker told the Daily Mirror.

According to the Daily Mail in 2010, Richards recalled in his autobiography "Life" how he snorted the ashes of his father: "The truth of the matter is that after having Dad’s ashes in a black box for six years, because I really couldn’t bring myself to scatter him to the winds, I finally planted a sturdy English oak to spread him around."

"And as I took the lid off of the box, a fine spray of his ashes blew out on to the table. I couldn’t just brush him off so I wiped my finger over it and snorted the residue."

"Ashes to ashes, father to son. He is now growing oak trees and would love me for it."
