I snorted my father's ashes, says Rolling Stone Richards.

ROLLING Stones wild man Keith Richards claims he snorted his own father's ashes during a drugs binge.

Richards made the extraordinary admission in a magazine interview.

"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," he said.

"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared, he didn't give as.

"It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."

His father, Bert, died in 2002 aged 84.

The 63-year-old rocker also recounted his worst drugs experience. "It was when someone put strychnine in my dope. It was in Switzerland. I was totally comatose, but I was totally awake. I could listen to everyone, and they were like, 'He's dead, he's dead!', waving their fingers and pushing me about, and I was thinking, 'I'm not dead!'," he recalled.

"I was number one on the Who's Likely To Die list for 10 years. I mean, I was really disappointed when I fell off the list."

And he added: "Some doctor told me I had six months to live and I went to their funeral. I don't trust doctors. It's not to say there ain't some good ones, but on a general level, no, I wouldn't trust 'em at all."

Richards predicted that Pete Doherty could be the next drugs casualty and told him to leave supermodel Kate Moss alone.

"My advice for Pete Doherty is that he should shut the f- up and leave her," he said. "I don't know the man, all I know is he's pushing his luck and there it is, but so is Kate, who I know very well.

"Kate wants to play with bad boys, and she's done one, and then another one, and then another one. Badabing, badabang, badaboom. She'll live, the boys will die."
