Rod Stewart 1.10.13 Thought of the Day


“I’m a rock star because I couldn’t be a soccer star.”

Roderick David “Rod” Stewart was born on this day in Highgate, North London, England in 1945. He is 68 years old.

With apologies to Stewart fans, the appeal of “Rod the Mod” has always eluded me. I’m more of a David Bowie fan. Heck, I’m more of a Jon Stewart fan. But it IS Rod’s birthday, and I do like a few songs so here goes…

Maggie May

Mandolin Wind (played, oddly enough,  on a banjo)..

Drift Away

For those of you living in the Chicago area …Tonight’s THE Night! You can wish Rod a big Happy Birthday by attending his concert at the United Center tonight (Tickets range from $39.50 to $650.00 —  but if you go for the extra cash, you get limited edition tour lithograph, so it’s totally worth it.)
