The Rolling Stones guitarist underwent minor surgery in a New Zealand hospital on Monday for a "mild concussion"
Everything is clear now as his representative reveals all. The man, Keith Richards, has undergone minor surgery in a New Zealand hospital on Monday May 8th, 2006 for a "mild concussion" he suffered from a spill he took while vacationing in the South Pacific last week.
Was "up and talking" soon after surgery at The Ascot Hospital in Auckland, still The Rolling Stones guitarist was expected to take several weeks to recuperate.
"Last week Keith was under observation in Auckland following a fall in Fiji and was feeling well after being examined by doctors last week," his representative said. "However after complaining of headaches yesterday, doctors thought it prudent to move ahead with a small operation to remove the pressure."
Due to such fact, the Stones' "A Bigger Bang European" tour, which was scheduled to start in Barcelona, Spain, later this month, will be postponed until June, the agency said.
