Reporting on Stones guitarist Keith Richards, currently holed up in an Aukland hospital after that palm-tree-and-jet-ski one-two punch in Fiji, the New Zealand Herald understates his condition as “much more serious than previously reported,” allowing that Richards has undergone brain surgery to relieve a subdural hematoma, a procedure requiring drilling a hole into the skull. Don’t laugh – it could affect the baffle of his head. Chances are he won’t make it to Barcelona when the band is due to kick off the European leg of its Bigger Bang tour on May 27. Meanwhile, Richards is having mini bottles of vodka smuggled into the hospital to help him in his recovery, andThe Sun says Jagger is furious with Richards for injuring himself “larking about” in Fiji. Smell something? It’s the beginning of another feud between the two.
