Rocking Rod is back!

Am listening to Rod Stewart's new album Time. After meandering around America's songbooks for too long, Rocking Rod is back. He's written a new album based on his life ... and he tells our story (we are contemporaries!!) brilliantly. Nostalgia, some regret, pain but overlaid with dreams, hope and optimism. Brighton Beach takes me back to being a teenager in the late 60's "a scruffy beat up working class teenage troubador ... and you were the finest girl that my eyes had ever seen." Then 35 years on to our whole world falling apart ... "It's Over ..." raw and real ... And then a new Maggie May for all of us. The ultimate summer anthem for us oldies "Can't stop me now, the world is waiting." Bring it on.
