    I picked up this book with a bit of skepticism after all, my mom recommended it to me, and my mom has not hidden her unadulterated, passionate love affair with Rod Stewart from me one bit throughout my life Not a real love affair, mind you given the multitudes of love affairs referenced in this book, I feel the need to clarify that point Just a love affair from afar Let s put it this way if Rod Stewart had shown up at my front door at any given point during my upbringing, I would ve giv I picked up this book with a bit of skepticism after all, my mom recommended it to me, and my mom has not hidden her unadulterated, passionate love affair with Rod Stewart from me one bit throughout my life Not a re...

    In honor of Rod Stewart s Rod The Autobiography, here are eight life lessons and playlist suggestions I took away from this fun, juicy, honest book.1 Blondes Have More Fun There s no shame in extreme hair maintenance.Rod devotes the second chapter of his book to his hair, which, let s face it, we all want to hear about And, as he says, maybe he is a bit extreme with his hair, but how many other people can say they re recognizable for the spiky tips on the top of their heads 2 Maggie Ma In honor of Rod Stewart s Rod The Autobiography, here are eight life lessons and playlist suggestions I took away from this fun, juicy, honest book.1 Blondes Have More Fun There s no shame in extreme hair maintenance.Rod devotes the second chapter of his book to his hair, which, let s face it, we all want to hear about And, as he says, maybe he is a bit extreme with his hair, but how many other people can say they re recognizable for the spiky tips on the top of their heads 2 Maggie...

    A good old romp That s what Rod Stewart s life was, and that s what this book was Rod Stewart is not a great musician, let s be clear He s an entertainer, with a phenomenal voice, who s been churning out hit records for forty years Nor is he a great writer And this isn t about to be nominated for a Booker prize anytime soon But that said, he doesn t pretend to be anything other than a bloke who got lucky and made the most of the cards that he was dealt What he does have is a great sense o A good old romp That s what Rod Stewart s life was, and that s what this book was Rod Stewart is not a great musician, let s be clear He s an entertainer, with a phenomenal voice, who s been churning out hit records for forty years Nor is he a great writer And this isn t about to be nominated for a Booker prize anytime soon But that said, he doesn t pretend to be anything other than a bloke who got lucky and made the most of the cards that he was dealt What he does have is a great sense of a humour and a general fun loving you only go around once in life attitude That reflects in the way he lived his life, and in the way he recounts it in this book It s never boring, never too serious and always amusing, as the pages wind their way from his very middle class upbringing in London to the uber luxurious mansion living in LA where it ended up.By the...

    This book was amusing and easy to read I saw Rod Stewart on Graham Norton promoting his book and it sounded interesting He is quite a comedian and seems to be a lot of fun I had no idea model trains were a passion of his, but I knew soccer was He s definitely not someone I would have wanted to date seriously he is obviously somewhat o...

    This is Rod Stewart s autobiography and I am a big fan of his music When reading memoirs of rock stars, I know certain elements are prevalent drugs, alcohol, being unfaithful, many wives, etc This one had that, but Rod came across as an extremely likable guy..and normal He seemed very impressionable in his early years which I found kind of sweet Then he eventually stumbled into music as a young adult and I m so glad he did He didn t have an entitled sense of himself and I think I appr This is Rod Stewart s autobiography and I am a big fan of his music When reading memoirs of rock stars, I know certain elements are prevalent drugs, alcohol, being unfaithful, many wives, etc This one had that, but Rod came across as an extremely likable ...

    I started this memoir immediately after finishing Pete Townshend s memoir and while reading I kept comparing it to Pete s book I feel like I should write a term paper comparing and contrasting the two men Both born in 1945 in England, went to the same clubs as teens, knew a lot of the same people, recorded at the same studios etc However, the men are different as night and day Pete is by far a better musician, a better songwriter and much cleverer than Rod Also Pete is by far a bigger wanke I started this memoir immediately after finishing Pete Townshend s memoir and while reading I kept comparing it to Pete s book I feel like I should write a term paper comparing and contrasting the two men Both born in 1945 in England, went to the same clubs as teens, knew a lot of the same people, recorded at the same studios etc However, the men are different as night and day Pete is by far a better musician, a better songwriter and much cleverer than Rod Also Pete is by far a bigger wanker Rod is infinitelypleasant to read than Pete Rod is a hoot Really funny Loads of stories I bet he is a lot of fun at a party Pete Townshend takes himself soooo seriously that...

    Rod Stewart has been one of my idols along with Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee since I was a child If there is a person who has lived the perfect life as far as having love, friends, material goods and a jolly swell time, it is him His music has been the soundtrack of my life I have read other biographies by authors and longed for the day when the man himself would tell the tale After waiting a year after hearing of its release, I h...

    Not a bad memoir from a rock star type of book, but still, the vacancy I feel after I read it feels so large in my head and heart At times charming, but alas, it is a life of sleeping with blondes, marrying blondes, having kids, the love of entertaining, the collection of 19th century art, and being rich The one thing among perhaps many is not to move into a one bedroom apartment The arena is his friend, and life is just a great kick The main reas...

    Reading this book revealed the obvious, Rod s life consisted mostly of alcohol, drugs, and beautiful women The book seemed to focus mostly on the latter, and believe it or not, was a bit of a let down for me I already knew most of this by just reading the tabloids over the years What I wasinterested in was the stories behind the music I thought the book really lagged in this regard, and gives the impression that his musical career just...
