Life's not a dress rehearsal.................................,
This review is from: Rod: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book, written with a winning candour throughout.
Rod Stewart has produced an autobiography full of great annecdotes, joy, regret but most of all an unquenchable thirst for life. One can only bear witness and applaud the way he takes full advantage of all that fame and fortune brings his way. What makes this book so entertaining is his refusal to judge or comment on the behaviour of his former selves. He merely sets out the story and asks the reader to make up their mind.
I challenge any man having read this to not thereafter ask himself in many a situation 'What would Rod do?'.
What is especially touching is his love for his wife Penny and large family. This is a sunny book and if ever someone's life epitomised the benefits of not taking things too seriously or analysing things too much it is Rod's.
Frankly you come away wanting more. I hope he writes in more detail in the future, particularly on the sixties and seventies with The Faces.
He didn't get to where he is today without meaning every word if it...
