Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is rolling again – making "a speedy recovery" after being injured while on vacation, says the band's spokeswoman.

Adds Auckland's Ascot Hospital duty manager Geoff Sparks: "I can categorically confirm Mr. Richards ... is no longer a patient in this hospital. He has been discharged," reports the Associated Press.

Richards, 62, was flown to Auckland, New Zealand, last week for observation after sustaining a "mild concussion" while on vacation in Fiji, says the rep. Various news reports have said that Richards fell from a coconut tree, a Jet Ski or a combination of the two.

The Rolling Stones have not made an official announcement as to the cause of Richards's mishap but say that the European leg of the band's world tour would begin, as scheduled, on May 27 in Barcelona.
