ROD THE FAMILY MAN
Rod Stewart finally made his debut on the Stern Show this morning, promoting Time, his first album of original rock songs in over twenty years.
Over the course of the conversation, we learned that he's mellowed considerably over the years from his wild rock and roll lifestyle, and is now faithfully married to the beautiful Penny Lancaster, and spends most of his time as father to his eight children.
But he's still full of good stories and he revealed much about his rock and roll years on the show today.
ROD THE ROCK STAR
Throughout his career, while not in the studio (or maybe even while he was in the studio), the raspy-voiced rocker has been with some of the most beautiful women of all time: Britt Ekland, Kelly LeBrock, and Rachel Hunter to name a few. According to Rod, even the therapist he saw during his divorce started coming on to him.
Robin then asked the question that men everywhere wanted to know: How does Rod get so many beautiful women interested in him?
Answer? He's Rod Stewart.
ROD THE SECURE HETEROSEXUAL
But it's not just girls that got Rod. Turns out Rod Stewart and "Howard TV" director Scott DePace have something in common: they've both been fooled by transvestites.
Rod was out one night with his Faces band mates, and they were all chatting up a beautiful woman. Rod couldn't believe his luck when, one by on,e each of his colleagues tapped out and the girl was all his. Then when they got down to business, he soon found out why: she was a he.
Rod laughed it off, pecked him on the cheek and said "You sleep on that side, I'll sleep on this side."
There's a secure man for you.
THE MAGYVER OF COCAINE
Howard had heard that back in the day Rod was so worried about his voice that he wouldn't snort anything up his nose... taking his cocaine through his ass instead. Rod elaborated: Guitarist Ronnie Wood was having issues with his nose, which was preventing him from doing any cocaine (according to Rod). Rod then swooped in with a solution. He devised a plan for both himself and his Faces bandmate, where they'd dump out some cold pills, fill the casings with cocaine, and took them rectally as suppositories.
MORE ROD TIDBITS:
- Rod Stewart credited the writing of autobiography Rod with curing his musical writer's block.
- Rod almost didn't release his signature hit Maggie May because some guys at the record company told him the song was "shit."
- Howard had heard that Rod was called "The Dick" because he has a huge penis. Rod would only say his wife finds his penis 'very pretty'
