Rod Stewart and Ron Wood Ran from the Plaster Casters
Regardless of what one thinks of his sense of humor, it’s undeniable that Howard Stern has an uncanny knack for getting his guests to open up about some of their most private details. On Monday, May 13, Rod Stewart talked about how close he and Ron Wood came to having casts made of their genitalia by the infamous Plaster Casters.
“That was me and Ronnie,” Stewart said. “I remember it like it was yesterday. I think we were in Chicago. We said, ‘Let’s have a look at what you’ve done, girls.’ First of all, they brought out Eric Burdon‘s, which was enormous. And then I think it was Jimi Hendrix, and Ronnie and I started to pull our trousers back on and left sheepishly.”
In the nearly 90-minute interview, Stewart went plenty of detail about his past of rock n’ roll debauchery (and yes, he does, at Stern’s prompting, discuss taking cocaine anally). Although the Faces didn’t get into destroying hotel rooms, like the Who, they had different methods of causing trouble on the road.
“What we used to do is displace the furniture,” he continued, but soon offered an explanation as to why. “Nine times out of ten, when the Faces were just becoming famous, they treated us like s— in hotels, so that was our way of revenge. We’d empty all of the furniture out of the room, put it in the service elevator and send it down to the kitchens.”
