Keef Lime in the Coconut

Today in Music History:

In 1981 Frank Zappa releases four albums in one day: 'Tinseltown Rebellion' (a double album), 'Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar,' 'Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar Some More,' and 'Return of the Son of Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar.'
I thought the internets wuz broke yesterday, or I would have thrown up something for you to read. Finally around five I figure out that the internets wasn't broke, I just needed to reboot my router. Duh.

Honestly, Keith Richards is an enigma. Rumours are rampant and reports are conflicting. After his Fiji coconut tree climbing escapades back in April(click pic for humour), there are some reports that he has had to undergo a second operation or he has brain damage or he's fine. It depends what you read and what you want to believe. This guy is 62 and through his 45 year career has filtered enough toxic chemicals through his body to kill a waste treatment plant and a coconut tree may be his demise? You gotta hand it to the guy, 62 and climbing trees. Just thinking about climbing a tree and I get tired. Back in 1998 Keef suffered a bizarre home accident when he broke three ribs and punctured a lung when he climbed a ladder in his library and was reaching for a book. Bloody Hell Keith. The old joke may be true, that the only things left on the planet after a nuclear holocaust will be cockroaches and Keith Richards. In honor of Keef's ariel acrobatics I thought a few coconut related songs would tie in quite nicely. And Keith, stay away from anything higher than the stage. Hope this post finds you well on your way to recovery old boy.
