Rod Stewart's Autiobiography

Rod Stewart's Autiobiography

Rod Stewart says he “should have known better” than to marry Rachel Hunter because she was so young.

“I didn’t have the tools [to deal with her leaving] because it hadn’t happened to me ever. As far as I could remember I don’t think anyone had ever left me or walked out on me so when it did happen, I just fell apart. Literally fell apart,” he told TV show Daybreak. “Upstairs with a hot water bottle on my chest because it ached so badly. I must admit as we were walking down the aisle my sister did say to my brother, ‘This will end in tears, she’s too young.’ And obviously it did end in tears because she was too young and I should have known better.”

About the book:

Rod Stewart (aka Rod The Mod and to a very select few, Dad) was born the working-class son of a Scottish plumber in North London. He was never, as some stories later had it, a professional footballer or a gravedigger, though he did become a bit of a singer – and a fairly good one at that.

Rod started out in the early 1960s, playing alongside acts like The Rolling Stones, before his distinctively raspy voice and natural onstage presence caught the eye of the iconic guitarist, Jeff Beck. An often-interesting two year stint with Beck’s group paved the way into the angst-inducing (for the world's hoteliers) five years with the Faces, whose offstage antics with alcohol, hotel rooms and groupies have become the stuff of legend. And during all this, he found a spare moment to write ‘Maggie May’, among a few others, and launch a solo career that has seen him sell in excess of 200 million records, be inducted into the Hall of Fame twice, and play the world’s largest ever concert. Not bad, as he says, for a bloke with a frog in his throat.
