Stones make news for different reasons this week

Keith Richards and Mick Jagger made news this week for reasons other than their music.

Richards reportedly fell out of a palm tree in Fiji, when he and fellow Stone Ron Wood attempted to climb it. Hmmm...what possibly motivated these guys to try and climb a palm tree? When you're a Rolling Stone anything is possible - even at 62 years old.

Meanwhile, frontman Mick Jagger made news for doing his own slapstick. Of course, Jagger's comedy act was on purpose as he's filming a pilot for ABC that may hit the airwaves this fall. Jagger also was the subject of reports saying he had refused to give up a hotel room to President Bush the singer has booked for the Stones' concert in Vienna, Austria in June. Jagger's camp says the reports are not true in that no one from Bush's team had requested Jagger release the room.

The seemingly ageless Stones are still on tour and play next in Barcelona, Spain on May 27 and continue touring Europe throughout the summer.
