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 t...

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...

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 nominate...

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 t...

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 impr...

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 peop...

Sometimes I read a musician's autobiography, and I like him/her more afterward. Other times, as with this one, I'm left wishing I hadn't read the book at all.
This felt more like bragging rights than telling the story of his life. I learned Rod Stewart is an unapologetic womanizer who loves footba...

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 b...

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 was mor...

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 b...
