Stone falls from tree



Of all the things that we figured would do in the legendary Keith Richards, a palm tree didn't make the top 10 list. But the Rolling Stones guitarist has been hospitalized in Auckland with a concussion after falling out of a palm tree in Fiji. Which, of course, brings up this question:

What was Keith Richards doing high up in a palm tree? Or better yet. How did 62-year-old Keith Richards climb up a palm tree?

Sorry, no answer to those two questions yet. But media around the world are waking up from their Friday night hangovers and spreading word of the accident. Richards was vacationing in Fiji -- reportedly at the exclusive Wakaya Club -- with his wife after the band's recent gigs Down Under. Their next show isn't until the end of May in Barcelona, Spain, so hopes are Richards will recover with time to spare.
