From the "Hell Freezes Over" Dept., one of the British tabs said that Keef is gonna have to go some type of brain surgery for a hemorrhage (or haemorrhage), and that the whole experience had moved him so much that he pledged to kick booze and cigarettes!

In Portugal there was a guitarrist for a rock band that was known as the Portuguese Keith Richards. One day he felt sick and was admitted to the hospital, where the doctors told him his liver was so destroyed that if he drank alcohol or took drugs again in his life (even if it was only once) he would die.
He stopped doing those things to himself and then appeared on a bunch of TV shows saying "How I defeated drugs"...
...more like "How drugs defeated me", if you ask my opinion.
Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Keith had "No Expectation" of falling out of the tree with his "Parachute Woman" but he was the "Soul Survivor" of the tragic accident. Although his brains were scrambled like a "Jig-Saw Puzzle", the rescuers said "Let it Bleed" as Keith begged them to have "Sympathy for the Devil". His letters addressed to "Dear Doctor" were finally answered days later.
Mick Jagger could only say that he was "Sad, Sad, Sad", he has "Mixed Emotions" now that "Shattered" Keith is recovering; although now "Happy" again, this puts the band between a "Rock and Hard Place".
Keith recalls the "Honky Tonk" woman in the tree. First "She Smiles Sweetly" and "She's Like a Rainbow", then "She's Hot", then "She's So Cold", said Keith. I was just about to get my "Rocks Off" and "Wild Horses" couldn't stop me when the "Starfucker" suddenly made the tree "Sway" from side to side because she wasn't getting "Satisfaction". "Stupid Girl". Then it was "Flight 505" crashing again, and I remember yelling "Bitch" just as I lost consciousness.
A philosophical Keith says "It's All Over Now" and it's just "Yesterday's Papers". You know, man, "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
