I admit I was a little worried. What if you were hit by a bus or Robbie Williams finally found your home address or somesuch! Compared to Robbie, Atlanta's a piece of cake.

Oh Atlanta . . .
Tsk the scoops you've missed. My favorite being a report I caught on BBC Radio 4 (of all places)
Keith Richards of (don't laugh) "The greatest Rock & Roll band in the world"-The Rolling Stones, was being treated at a New Zealand hospital after suffering injuries sustained from falling out of a tree on the island of Fiji.
A case of " Hey You Get Outta My Tree" Keef probably was out of his tree in the tree.

Richards, 62, suffered "mild concussion" after reportedly falling out of a coconut tree while on holiday in Fiji with bandmate Ronnie Wood.

He was airlifted to Auckland's Ascot Hospital for observation on Saturday, where he underwent a brain scan.

"He has been discharged," hospital duty manager Geoff Sparks said.

"I can categorically confirm Mr Richards... is no longer a patient in this hospital," he said. But it was not clear exactly when he was released.

One newspaper also reported that Keith, got on a Jet Ski after the fall and had another accident. Several Australian and New Zealand media outlets reported the fall from the tree.

Band spokeswoman Fran Curtis has said only that Richards was injured earlier this week and flown to New Zealand with his wife, Patti, for observation. Her statement Saturday did not comment on Richards' condition or how he was injured.

New Zealand's Sunday Star-Times provided no details on the Jet Ski crash, but quoted Dr. Uzzel Kanti Dhar as saying that Richards was admitted to Suva Private Hospital spokesman hospital in the Fijian capital on Thursday, the same day he was said to have fallen from the tree.

Ah well you know how the song goes Keith... "You can't always get what you want..."
