Keith Richards’ Mother Passes Away

April 24th, 2007 // 2 Comments

Keith Richards’ 91-year old mother, Doris Richards, passed away over the weekend, with her son by her side. Reuters reports:

Richards is the only child of Doris and Bert Richards, who split up in 1962. She bought her son his first guitar for his 15th birthday. He learned some chords from her father, Gus Dupree, a musician who instilled him with an early passion for music.

In her later years, she raised her granddaughter Angela. She is also survived by three other grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Not to be flip, but whoah, Keith sure comes from some long-livin’ people. I’m assuming they’re part robot.

    I wonder if he’ll snort her ashes like he did with dad.

    Their secret to longevity is snorting the ashes of their parents. I understand hypodermic or enema administration works as well.
