LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards set the story straight about his fall out of a tree this year in admitting he was not searching for coconuts.

Richards told Rolling Stone magazine that he is embarrassed over the whole incident, TMZ.com reported.

Rolling Stone quoted Richards as saying: "I was sitting on this gnarled shrub about 6 feet of the ground. I was wet -- I'd been swimming. I hit the ground the wrong way, my head hit the trunk, and that was that."

Richards has recovered from the incident after having to undergo emergency head surgery.
