Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The extraordinary life and career of music legend Rod Stewart, in his own words for the first time.
With his soulful and singular voice, narrative songwriting, and passionate live performances Rod Stewart has paved one of the most iconic and successful music careers of all time. He was the charismatic lead singer for the trailblazing rock and roll bands The Jeff Beck Group and The Faces, and as a solo artist, the author of such beloved songs as "Maggie May," "Tonight's the Night," "Hot Legs," "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?," "Young Turks," "Forever Young," and "You Wear It Well." Now after more than five decades in the spotlight, he is finally ready to take a candid and romping look back at his life both on and off the stage. From his humble British roots to his hell-raising years on tour with his bandmates, not forgetting his great loves (including three marriages and eight children) and decades touring the world, Rod delivers a riveting ride through one of rock's most remarkable lives.

Review by Library Journal (2013-03-15)

Rock legend Stewart traces his five-decade career from being the lead singer in the Jeff Beck Band and the group Faces through his highly successful solo years. Stewart is candid and humorous as he discusses his music, wild days on the road with his band, amusing anecdotes about his great friendship with Elton John, and a seemingly endless list of affairs and marriages with tall leggy blondes (all together he has been married three times and has eight children). Digressions along the way delve into his passion for cars, model railroads, and his most identifiable asset-his hair. Simon Vance expertly captures the man.

Verdict: Stewart's legions of lifelong followers and fans of rock 'n' roll musician tell-alls will enjoy this amusing behind-the-scenes romp with " Rod the Mod".-Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama, Florence

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Rod Stewart book I bought this as a gift for my sister, and she loves it! 12/27/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great gift idea for a Rod Stewart fan I bought this book for my husband's birthday ... he likes Rod Stewart (and so do I) so I know he will enjoy reading about Rod's many exciting adventures (and I get to read it when he's finished with it). I enjoyed my experience of being able to order online at a great price and being able to pick up my order when I am in town. Thank you for instituting this feature ... I plan to use it again and especially around the holidays to avoid the crowds and long lines. 08/16/2013
