ENJOYED the camera shot last week that captured Rod Stewart’s emotional outpouring as Celtic clinched victory over Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
The tears were flowing as one of the rock world’s great bon viveurs showed the true depth of his feelings for the men in green and white on their special night.
A couple of days later he was charming the birds from the trees as a guest on BBC’s Graham Norton show. His autobiography is out and I’m sure it’s a real page-turner.
Twenty four hours on and he was taking centre stage at the Royal Albert Hall in the live coverage of the Festival of Remembrance. His rendition of Auld Lang Syne, in front of the Queen, had the audience entranced.
The phrase ‘good old boy’ could be made for Rod. I first heard him sing Maggie May back in September 1971 – I still remember him juggling a football on Top of the Pops as he delivered that fantastic song. I was a fan then and I am still a fan now over 40 years later.
He’s a football fan that became a rock star, and a rock star that’s still a football fan.
Back then in 1971 I had a full head of hair, so did Rod. I’m afraid only one of us need the trouble the hair-stylists on a regular basis these days!
