Everyone knows about Keith Richards by now. He's the Rolling Stones guitarist who somehow defies the laws of physics and toxicology by...

50 years ago today, The Rolling Stones hit the stage at The Marquee Club in London, England. It was their very first show, and they were billed as "The Rollin' Stones." 50 years, a ton of drugs, and one 'G' later, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts are still making music.

Jagger closed out the last season of SNL with an amazing tribute to Kristen Wiig, Richards recently wrote an award-winning autobiography, and the band is rehearsing in preparation for a possible world tour.

Jagger and Richards are almost 70 years old, and the band has been around for as long as Axl Rose has been alive. Rose is as washed up as whale skeleton, but somehow the Stones are still kickin' it.

What do you think? Are the Stones too old to be rocking? Should they hang up their instruments? Or do they still make their tight pants look good?

Maybe Keith Richards isn't as hard as we thought he was.

Just hours after the Internet lit up with his claim that he'd snorted the ashes of his own father mixed with cocaine, his manager told MTV that it wasn't true.

According to Jane Rose, in an email message, Richards' father-ingesting comment was "Said in jest... Can't believe anyone took [it] seriously."

Not like someone could be blamed for believing him. It's as if Britney Spears said she went clubbing in no pants, then took it back the next day and wondered what the fuss was about.

Yesterday, Keith Richards added to his own self-medicating legend by telling NME:

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

"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."

Thankfully, Tara Conner got herself into rehab before she hit the point where she tried to snort any relatives.

Regardless, the somehow-still-alive Rolling Stones guitarist is in great spirits of late, and is set to make a cameo in the upcoming conclusion of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

He'll play the father of Johnny Depp's character, Jack Sparrow, who Depp says is based in part on Richards.

Seems like good casting on the producers' part. It's hardly a mystery that Depp, who dated Kate Moss and was engaged to Winona Ryder, used to snort all kinds of things as well.
