Keith Richards - Transformation From 1 To 75 Years Oldfilm del per
Ageing rock wild man Keith Richards is understood to have had surgery for a blood clot on his brain and doctors were worried he would not survive. The Herald understands the year-old's condition was much more serious than previously reported and he remains in New Zealand while the rest of the Rolling Stones are gathered in Europe for the next leg of the band's world tour. The operation was for a subdural haematoma, a blood clot that forms in the outer membranes of the brain, often from a torn vein. It can be caused by a fall or other head injury. The operation on the famed guitarist was done soon after he arrived in New Zealand from Fiji, according to a source. His condition was described at the time as a mild concussion.
The holiday mishap in which Keith Richards fell out of a coconut tree in Fiji has turned out to be more serious than previously thought, with the Rolling Stones guitarist undergoing surgery to relieve a blood clot on his brain. A spokesman for the band said the operation at a hospital in New Zealand on Sunday was a success, and that Richards was already up and about and talking to his family. Richards, 62, is planning to join the rest of the band for the European leg of their world tour, although the opening concert in Barcelona has been postponed from 27 May to a date in June to be announced. Initial reports suggested that Richards suffered only mild concussion when he fell 16ft while gathering coconuts a fortnight ago. But after being flown to New Zealand, tests at Ascot Hospital in Auckland revealed he had a subdural haematoma, or blood clot on the brain. Surgery generally involves drilling a hole through the skull to drain the clot. It was not clear yesterday whether Richards was still in hospital or had already been discharged.
The Rolling Stones guitarist developed a close relationship with Andrew Law after the New Zealander performed an operation on the rocker's skull in Talking about their lifestyle in England, Law said: "We go out and have fish and chips and a beer. Law - who is on the rocker's payroll - believes he has formed a bond with Richards because it gives him the chance to talk to someone outside the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. The year-old doctor told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "I don't think he's run into too many neurosurgeons and I haven't run into too many rock stars. Richards and bandmate Ronnie Wood were trying to climb a tree while on holiday in Fiji, when he fell out and hit his head. He suffered a blood clot in the brain and was airlifted to a private hospital in New Zealand, where Law was called at 2am.

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has had many brushes with death, but in late April , he had one of his scariest mishaps. While on vacation with bandmate Ronnie Wood on a private island off the coast of Fiji, Richards took a tumble out of a tree. The injury led to the Stones postponing tour dates, as well as much consternation over his health. The circumstances around his fall were also shrouded in mystery : Some articles reported he was up a palm tree — which, in a weird way, made perfect sense — while others referenced a separate jet ski accident that also occurred around the same time. As it turns out, Richards cleared up all of these rumors in his autobiography, Life.
