A Connecticut man who had hundreds of guns and barrels of explosives in his million-dollar suburban mansion told cops he was making a bomb for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

Joseph Callahan, 69, had about 100 pounds of ammonium nitrate among the frightening cache of guns, ammo and explosives cops found when they raided his home last week.

“That’s the chemical used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing,” he told cops, according to ctpost.com.

He also told them he was making a bomb for the hard-partying Richards, who lives in Weston, Conn., a short drive from Callahan’s home in the posh Greenfield Hill section of Fairfield.

A rep for Richards, 69, said he wasn’t available for comment.
