Publisher's Summary

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.

What the critics say

“Funny, self-deprecating and a whole lot less boastful than he could be, Mr. Stewart offers a string of Grade-A rock ‘n’ roll debauchery stories and…makes them charming.” (The New York Times)

“In an action-packed memoir, Stewart explains how he survived the excesses of Seventies rock stardom…full of bad behavior and enough ex-wives to fill an entire soccer side.” (Rolling Stone)

“The best news about Stewart’s autobiography is that it revives the rollicking humor and self-deprecating personality of his early career. It takes the jolly perspective of a guy who knows he’s one of the world’s luckiest men, and the result proves infectious.” (New York Daily News)

Missing Author’s Voice

The book should have been read by Rod Stewart himself. He has a very distinctive voice that is annoyingly not that of the narrator.

I wish I was Rod Stewart

Playing with kick-ass musicians, partying in giant mansions, driving fast cars and shagging babes - That's the life for me. Alas, I am just a plumber. However after listening to Roddy's autobiography I did get the sense that he isn't a total wanker. He genuinely seems grateful for his success and the way his life has turned out. And most of all he loves the music!

Rod is God!

I loved the frankness of this book and it felt like I was in the middle of the journey as he told the story. It would’ve been even better if Rod Stewart himself told the story but it was pretty cool just to hear about the grass roots he came from two areas today and how he felt about it all as it unfold it. Kind of cool how he connected with all kinds of now famous in their own right musicians across the pond. It’s like putting together a really big puzzle. Thanks for sharing Rod!
