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.
From the Hardcover edition.
Overall I enjoyed the book. He could be long winded on his relationships. It is still nice to see someone who was not connected somehow make it to the top. He earned it.
Thank you for an enjoyable read! I have been a fan since1972, when I was 12 and heard your music for the first time. I have been fortunate enough to see you in concert 16 times in and around Atlanta, where I live. I have followed your career in the media over the years and found it refreshing to hear the stories in this book through your reflection. Your music has been with me throughout my life from relationships to marriage, divorce, parenting, and even open heart surgery to repair a birth defect in my heart. I was listening to your music on my iPod right up to entering the operating room. Thanks for being a great part of my journey here on earth, I wish you great success with the new songs and know that I will purchase the record as soon as it is available. BTW, I love the Christmas CD. Take care, and again thank you.

I have always loved the voice and the music. Thanks Rod for gifting the fans with an intimate view of your journey. I anticipate enjoying the 2013 album. I wish you and your family much happiness.
