When I was growing up in the 70’s, Rod Stewart was a bit of a “bad boy.” “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy,” “Hot Legs,” and the like.
Then Rod grew a bit older, and his music aged with him. Instead of keeping up with the times, he moved backwards. During the late 80’s and 90’s, he dove headlong into the Motown sound, even recording one called “The Motown Song.”
Time went on, and Rod’s music went back even further. He’s now doing REAL Oldies, stuff from the 40’s and 50’s.
I fully expect that before Rod dies, he will record at least one album of Ragtime classics.
