Keith Richards finally gets Satisfaction

Alright, so this might not be the typical sports and pop culture item, but I saw this quote and I absolutely had to put it on here. Keith Richards (of the Rolling Stones for those of you who have had your head under a rock for 40-something odd years) recently gave an interview to a British magazine and they asked him about the strangest drug he ever ingested:

"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared. . . . It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."

So in case you're wondering, the "he" refers to Keith Richards' deceased father. Yes, Keith Richards combined cocaine with the ashes of his late father, and snorted it. And this did not happen back in the crazy 60s, 70s, or 80s. It happened in 2002.

I don't even know how to offer my take on this, except to put it up here for your consideration.

It's not the ashes that bother me as much as the fact that Keith Richards is still doing coke at his age. That has to be frustrating for every parent of a 20-something year old junkie. They have to look at the kid and think, "Why can't you be more like Keith Richards?!?".

Now Richards is denying he was serious when he said it.
