Rocker Richards rolls off tree or jet ski

Accident of the week

It might not be his 19th nervous breakdown, but the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has certainly had his share of physical breakdowns.

Reports vary, but the 62-year-old rocker either fell out of a palm tree or off a jet ski last week while on tour in New Zealand. He was hospitalized with a concussion.

Previous mishaps include a 1998 fall from a ladder that broke three ribs and a 1990 infection from a guitar-string-inflicted wound to a finger.
