Great album.

I think Rod could still sing the dickens out of this. It's a damn shame he chooses not to.

Pathetic he *suddenly* took ill when he was supposed to play with the remaining Faces again at the r'n'r hall of fame. What's he afraid of? That he'll realize he likes singing rock'n'roll still?

[3] He's afraid that he'll scare the old ladies buying his recent LPs.

Imagine what high regard Rod would be held in if he had tragically died in a plane crash in 1975. Amazing how thoroughly he betrayed his talent.

[5] Wasn't the classic quote about Mick circa Dirty Work that the only way for him to reclaim legitimacy was to be shot in Harlem by an angry husband or angry wife?

[6] Ha! But while Mick may have lost his edge, at least he went back to making music that fits him and his talent (okay, so it's not the Stones of '68-'72, but what is?) with some semblance of taste and occasional flashes of the old brilliance. Rod just completely threw it out the window for a big pile of dough and chicks. The stuff Stewart did with the Beck Group, Faces and his early solo stuff - just flat out brilliant. He never lost his pipes, he just destroyed their reason for being.

[7] "He never lost his pipes, he just destroyed their reason for being."

Best summary of Rod Stewart's career ever!
