More Morbidity



This from the ranks of what my friend Trace calls, "Persistently Undead Rockstars."

‘I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow,’ Keith Richards said of his father's ashes."

Naturally, one would then turn the sinus cavities into a mausoleum in tribute.

Of course today Richards PR people are working overtime to say he was just kidding - which is probably true - but who among us was shocked? Keith Richards snorted his dad's ashes? Yes. Yes, I could totally see that happening.

Like Bill Hicks said, after the nuclear holocaust the only things left will be the cockroaches and Keith Richards.

And I am going to start using the phrase "Persistently Undead Rockstars." Thank Trace for me.

I intend to use that phrase as a blog series, but I'm sure Trace will be flattered that her term is spreading, as well it should.

and you are right, KR's antics are hardly surprising. it's heavy juju, man. in fact, I daresay he stumbled onto some long forgotten mystical tradition once practiced in the depth of the rainforest, before the Lorax had at the trees.

I like that phrase too.

KR is the closest thing I have to a higher power, in that he has managed to turn self-destruction into a verifiable long-term lifestyle. Who else would have the unmitigated gall to say, "When I was on heroin, I learned how to ski and did Exile on Main Street"?

Snorted his own dad? I don't doubt it for a minute.

the most disturbing part of the story--if true--is that the elder richards died in 2002, which means keith was doing coke at the ripe old age of 150. nuckin futs.

I don't even want to know what Ziggy Marley did to Bob then...

I know KR has aged, but as a rock star he is an incredibly unattractive person - I mean Iggy Pop ain't too pretty, nor is Tom Petty, and Bowie(jezus can you tell I played in a clasic rock cover band?) but at least they are what I would call "odd" looking. Keith is just plain ugly.

Kissy, you find the most intriguing photos.

1) he's lying
2) Mick was just going thru a phase
3) hey that's my bike!

UF Mike said...

Peteski, that wasn't a phase Mick was going through. That was a McDonald's drivethrough. On your bike.

I've had Soda Pop come outta my nose...I even snorted pop rocks" before...and Ive had a Jamaican nosebleed before...but I'm really glad we went ahead and buried my Pop.

I imagine the list of things that Keef hasn't snorted is very, very short.

I put a pinch of my dead best friends ashes in tea...
It is easier on the mucosa that way.
