Rod Stewart to Write Tell All Book
By Andrew Vaughan
The rock legend joins ā60s contemporaries Neil Young and Pete Townshend in announcing plans to write his memoirs.
The soccer-loving rocker has signed a deal with publishers Random House and, according to theĀ Daily Express, has promised to "hold nothing back."
The book will race his days in The Jeff Beck Group and The Faces, to superstar years in America and marriages to Alana Hamilton, Rachel Hunter and Penny Lancaster.
Stewart said: "I thought long and hard before committing to write my book. It is a funny old thing telling my life story but I truly intend to hold nothing back. I've had quite a life, known some extraordinary people and had some amazing experiences.
"I've waited all this time, until my 50th year in the business and realize I can no longer put it off. Forget skeletons in the closet; this one's going to be socks and knickers under the bed."
