Show 40 Friday 12 May

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.


Kia Ora. In Stick News today, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards was discharged from hospital in New Zealand yesterday, but he will stay in the country for some time.

Keith Richards is a 62 year old guitarist for the British rock band The Rolling Stones.
The Rolling Stones formed in 1962 and are still together. They were due to start a European tour at the end of this month. But the tour was delayed because of Keith Richard’s injury.
Keith was on holiday in Fiji. He fell out of coconut tree and injured his head. He then flew to New Zealand to get it fixed. Doctors drilled a hole in his skull to drain blood from his brain.
When Keith came out of hospital yesterday, he thanked the staff and said: “I hope I wasn’t too much of a pain in the arse.”

Richards also said the female hospital staff were beautiful, prompting concern amongst doctors about the success of the operation.
He will stay in New Zealand for several weeks and return to the hospital for check ups.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 12th of May.
Kia Ora.
