LATEST: Injured ROLLING STONE Keith Richards has been released from a hospital in New Zealand, after a reported fall from a palm tree left him suffering from concussion on Thursday (27APR06).
The Brown Sugar hitmaker, 62, was injured during his visit to exclusive Fiji hideaway the Wakaya Club resort. Following treatment in a Fiji hospital, he was later airlifted to Auckland's Ascot hospital, where staff kept him under observation.
