Rod seems to be a good writer, this i enjoyed, but by the end i was getting tired of hearing how many times he fell in love and all his ex-wives. I think Rod himself should of read done the reading, this might of made a big difference. Simon Vance did a good job, but i believe hearing Rods voice might of made a difference.
Interesting but slow going, almost all you ever wanted to know about Rod and his career as a singer and his affairs and how easily he fell in and out of love. is it 7 or 8 kids he has? No real surprises here.
Just a simple girl living the simple life. Nothing is complicated when the power of imagination leads the way. Close your eyes & just listen
The audio edition is a MUST. The narrator was perfect - he definitely captured Rod's personality and at times...I really thought it was Rod telling the story himself.
Discovering where his songs came from....those moments of his life that were put into music.
It certainly was NOT a boring narration as some audible books tend to be. His accent, play on words, and his incredible timing made you feel like you were sitting across from him while he was telling the story.
This is an AUDIBLE MUST! I recently downloaded another biography of a famous rock and roller, but within a day or two I returned it. It was so dreadfully boring and horribly narrated.
Funny, Talented and a Cad
I liked his truthfulness and his ability to take accountability for his lifestyle. He treated most of the women in his life like hell and he got it thrown back to him with Rachel Hunter. I thought it was very well thought out and interesting. I loved hearing about his early days in the music industry, his influences and how his love for his family shaped him into the person he is today. I really enjoyed this book!
I have been reading since before I started school. I am not sitting in front of a book someone is reading it to me!
The story was terribly written.
No, actually I read a lot of this genre.
He had a great voice, and command of the essence of Rod Stewart.
I was very disappointed with quality of the writing.
Given the material that he had to pull from. He wasted so much time on the drugs and the alcohol. I doubt that I will ever listen to an autobiography of another performer.
I enjoyed the insights into the origins of Rod Stewart's music and his candor.
It was a dry and lifeless performance. Rod Stewart is a colorful person and this Simon Vance's narration was completely beige.
