Hellraiser Keith Richards once threw a child's canary out of a window after it disturbed his hangover headache. The wild rocker, who caused worldwide controversy earlier this month (APR07) when he jokingly claimed he snorted his dead father's ashes, was suffering from a heavy night out when the bird's antics got too much for him. Richards picked up the canary, which belonged to bandmate Ronnie Wood's then five-year-old son JAMIE, and threw it out of the window believing it was an alarm clock. Despite a mass search for the bird they had to go back to Wood's luxury Los Angeles mansion empty handed. Jamie, now 32, recalls, "My mum was telling me the story the other day. She said Keith thought the canary was an alarm clock. He cracks me up."
