Rod Stewart will be 60 in less than two years’ time – yet his popularity (and his determination to continue living the rock-star life to the full) is undimmed by the passing years. Since turning 50, life has been as turbulent as ever for him; marriage to Rachel, two children, divorce, a serious cancer scare, more albums released and concerts given, singing for the Queen at the Jubilee concert – and, naturally, a new blonde on his arm, Penny Lancaster. Tim Ewbank and Stafford Hildred have been tracking Rod’s life for many years, right from the early days of the Faces. For this book they have spoken to many of the most important influences in his life, including past loves like Bebe Ruell, Britt Ekland and Rachel Hunter.This new book is the most complete and intimate account of the life and career of the ultimate rock-star.
Rod Stewart remains our best-loved rock-star; for many decades, he has been a brilliant thread in the tapestry of British pop music.
