Keith Richards
Fell Out Of
A Palm Tree

"I conked me head."

Unfortunately, he's hurt and in the hospital, or else this would be even funnier than it already is:

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards suffered a mild concussion while vacationing in Fiji and was flown to a New Zealand hospital for treatment, a band spokeswoman said Saturday.

Media reports said Richards fell out of a palm tree and remained hospitalized in Auckland.

Richards, 62, suffered a mild concussion while on holiday in Fiji earlier this week and was flown to New Zealand, band spokeswoman Fran Curtis said in a statement.

"Following treatment locally and as a precautionary measure, he flew to a hospital accompanied by his wife, Patti, for observation," Curtis said.

By the way, how would a doctor determine whether Keith Richards was suffering the ill effects of a concussion?
