Rod Stewart never re-invents himself
Rod Stewart will never undergo a "reinvention".
The veteran 'Maggie May' singer said he's never felt the need to restyle himself or be a part of any trends, as it is his love of music which has carried his career over the last 40 years.
He told website yorkshirepost.co.uk: "Forty years and the rest of it! Some may fall out of love with the business or it falls out of love with them, but I've never fallen out of love with music.
"I hate the word reinvention, I've just always done what feels right at the time.
"I get paid to stand on stage, sing the songs I love and perform. No wonder I'm happy."
Rod said his family may have made fun of his career choice at certain points, but that they have largely been supportive of his music, since he joined his first skiffle group as a teenager.
He added: "The cliche of 'why don't you get a proper job' occasionally reared its head, but that's parents for you.
"They always supported me and it was my dad who brought me my first guitar. I was 13 or 14 at the time and actually wanted a model railway station, but he passed the guitar to me and said, 'Son, I think there might be some money in this'.
"When I was 15 my two older brothers bought me a better guitar and it just went on from there. It's having family like that which makes success really worth it when it eventually comes."
Rod is on tour across the UK in May and June.Posted on 5 Apr 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
