I was watching the news a little bit ago and they said he was on a rough plane flight that landed Saturday night.Billy said alot of stuff was falling from the overhead storage and he was hit in the head with some of it.Hey you never know with head injuries look what happened to Natasha Richardson [Liam Neeson's] wife.

Later Mark.
