I first met Rod Stewart shortly after he released "Maggie May." I was standing behind the stage watching his warm up act, when I heard conversation going on behind me. I turned around and Rod was standing directly behind me, with two drop dead gorgeous girls, one on each arm. "Hey mate" he said, and we had a short conversation. I asked him for an autograph but neither of us had anything to write on. One of his girls produced a matchbook and pen from her bag, and he signed it. "Enjoy the show" he said as he climbed the stairs to the stage. I still have the matchbook.
With his autobiography coming out tomorrow, I thought I'd touch a few topics that caught my fancy.
