Uh... Why is the <head> element coming at line nine of your code? It should be line three, immediately after the dtd and the <html> line. At most four, if you're using a pre-html5 dtd and you've got a hard line break. What's in those preceding eight lines?
The validator tends to be pretty good about pointing out the reason for a problem-- unless it's something so unexpected that the validator simply throws up its hands and says "I have no idea what's going on here" :)
