Rod the Mod always had that special something ladies are still craving after. Sure, we know it has little to do with his car collection, but taking your
girlfriend to dinner in a Lambo in a time people would still road trip in VW Campers must make a difference. The Lamborghini Miura phase is over for the Good Morning Little Schoolgirl singer, but it
could still be going for one happy buyer.
This is not the first Lamborghini Miura Rod Stewart drove we know. In fact, once we stumbled upon the ad, the first thing that popped into our heads was that 1972 rare yellow SV beauty. But that one was sold about two years ago, and it’s a different story.
The "1971 K Lamborghini Miura S SV" is an upgraded model of the company’s V12 beast, the Miura P400S. It offered even greater performance and improved handling, and it boasted an impressive 385 horsepower. The rear track was widened five inches, to accommodate wider wheels, which necessitated the Dino-like flaring of the rear body panels.
Big fan of the classic or not, those distinctive laid-back headlamps, which lost their eyelashes in favor of the masculine plain black surrounds, still impress the hell out of any petrolhead. And if that won’t tickle you to hit the loud pedal, a top speed of 180 mph should make for enough reasons to crave for it. Best part? The rare beauty is on sale on eBay in the UK.
The car was supplied to its first owner, rock legend Rod Stewart, by Lamborghini Concessionaires Ltd. of Alie Street, London. And the ad claims there are papers to prove its line of owners. Further details can be consulted, but is there anything else one needs to be convinced than these words: Lamborghini Miura and Rod Stewart?
Tonight is the night and don’t you dare to forget it!
Rod Stewart’s band mate Jim Cregan will be delivering those great Rod Stewart classics with his new band Cregan & Co.
The band, which will be playing The Cellars at Eastney (56 Cromwell Road, Southsea) on Friday, May 8 at 7.30pm (023 9282 6249), grew out of the band Apart From Rod.
Jim, best man at Rod’s wedding and close mates with him still, was in Rod’s band from 1976-1994.
“I was wanting to start a new band, and it seemed ridiculous, here we were looking for something to do and yet we had this great catalogue of songs to draw on,” Jim said. “I hadn’t even considered playing it. We decided to give it a go. The other guys all came together. We knew within four bars that it was going to work.”
Jim was the main-stay of Rod’s first band after he left the Faces. With Rod, Jim co-wrote the hits, recorded the albums, and toured the world in an era which produced tracks including You’re in My Heart, I Was Only Joking, Baby Jane, Blondes Have More Fun, Forever Young and D’Ya Think I’m Sexy.
Jim went on to work the biggest names in the music business including Art Garfunkel, Ronnie Wood, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Joe Cocker, Katie Melua, Michael Bolton, Paul Carrack, Paul Rodgers, Cat Stevens, , Gary Brooker, Frank Zappa and Jeff Beck.
With Rod, though, he certainly had some memorable times: “I think at a certain point you realised that you just had to slow down,” concedes Jim. “Your body can’t take the abuse for hugely-extended periods of time. I just stopped.”
But it wasn’t necessarily a pressurised time. Far from it, as Jim recalls: “It was an endless party. Rod was a really really good guy to work with. I have worked with people who would have a post-mortem after a gig. I have known some band leaders make all the guys in the band listen to a recording of the show right after - and there is nothing more annoying. Every blunder is picked apart, and it becomes destructive.”
Not so Rod: “If you made a mistake, he would just laugh. If it was a big enough mistake, you would just roll around on the floor laughing. He was really good fun. He was really easy-going.”
On vocals for Cregan & Co is singer/guitarist Ben Mills who teamed up with Jim and the band in October 2011. An accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right, Ben reached the final of UK X Factor in 2006 (the year Leona Lewis won), and launched a successful solo career on the back of it.
MT. PLEASANT, Mich. (WOOD) Another concert has been added to the Outdoor Summer Concert Series lineup at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.
Rod Stewart is coming to the stage on July 19. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has his first album of original material in nearly two decades. This one is expected to sell out fast! Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 2.
Dave Mason and Irish Mythen will be opening for headliner Rod Stewart at the Cavendish Beach Event Centre July 9,Whitecap Entertainment announced Wednesday.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of the legendary band Traffic, Mason is expected to provide an evening of music history as he retraces the earliest days of his career with Traffic and the works that launched his successful solo career.
Mason founded Traffic with Steve Winwood while both were still teenagers, and created music that would find its way into the hearts of generations of music lovers. He would go on to establish himself as a successful songwriter, guitarist and solo artist.
Born and raised in County Wexford, Ireland, Irish Mythen has calls Prince Edward Island home.
Mythen has travelled the globe — playing in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. Her music has the root of small communities and the strength of a loyal fan base. Just this month, Mythen took home an East Coast Music Award for Roots Traditional Recording of the Year.
He's known for his rock star style, and has spawned many an imitator over the years.
And it seems Rod Stewart has another fashion fan in the shape of his 27-year-old daughter Ruby, as the two stepped out together in Los Angeles on Monday in similar denim-heavy attire.
However, it was the matching foot braces on their feet that really caught the eye.
The 70-year-old British rock legend and his pretty blonde daughter looked in good spirits as they walked down a street in the sunny Californian city together.
But perhaps the most eye-catching element to their jaunt was the fact they were each wearing what appeared to be a medical boot on a foot each.
Rod wore his double-strapped item of footwear on his left foot, while Ruby sported hers on her right.
As well as their similar foot braces, Ruby looked every inch her father's daughter as she fashioned out a rock-inspired look of her own.
The blonde beauty - Rod's daughter with ex-girlfriend Kelly Emberg - flattered her slim figure with a pair of pale jeans with slashes across the knees, teaming the denim bottoms with a black t-shirt and a classic leather jacket.
On her un-braced foot, the pretty model wore a hi-top Converse trainer (carrying the redundant sneaker in her hand) and finished her casual look with a retro pair of rounded black sunglasses.
Meanwhile Rod cut a notably youthful figure in a bold double denim look.
The Maggie May and You Wear It Well hitmaker teamed a pair of dark jeans with a lighter coloured denim jacket, layered over a funky printed shirt.
The busy star was in Auckland, New Zealand last week while in the midst of his tour, and showed no visible signs of an injury to his foot.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Rod Stewart and is awaiting comment
A documentary about the life and legacy of rock, blues, and jazz guitarist Jeff Golub.
During his illustrious career, Jeff Golub was Rod Stewart's front man, he played with Billy Squier and other legends, and recorded 11 solo albums, plus three more as the leader of Avenue Blue. Inspired by Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and BB King, among others, Jeff began playing guitar when he was 12. Playing rock, blues, and jazz guitar, Jeff became a world renowned performer, playing in stadiums, concert halls, and clubs around the world. On January 1, 2015, Jeff passed away from a rare brain disorder, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).
This documentary takes you behind-the-scenes into the life of an extraordinary artist, from his greatest stage and studio performances, to his family life. Most importantly, the film is an intimate portrait of his last years, during which his family and the music community rally around him and, in return, are inspired by Jeff's unflagging optimism and generous spirit.
Your contribution will ensure that the film is completed. In addition to telling Jeff's story and providing an inside look at the tight-knit jazz community, this film will help get the word out about PSP, a little-known neurological illness, which shares many similarities with other diseases, such as CBD, MSA, and Parkinson's.
This film will serve to inspire support for research for a cure for these diseases, and also provide comfort and understanding to all families dealing with a terminally ill member, no matter what the disease.
We have three years of incredible documentary footage, from 2012 all the way to the tribute concert in Jeff's memory in January, 2015. We also have amazing archival performance footage of Jeff on stage, and in the recording studio. You can help us get this entertaining, emotional, and important story crafted with the care that it deserves. Any amount you can provide helps us through the filmmaking process: editing the story, composing the score, purchasing rights to music and performances, having the highest quality color correction, and sound mix. The entire process will cost more than the $25,000 goal, so any amount you provide will be immensely valuable to making the sure the film is completed and released to the world. We thank you

Jeff Golub was an extraordinary guitar player with a big heart and my dear friend. Rod Stewart.
He brought us the leopard-print catsuit but it seems the Rod The God is not immune from making a sartorial faux-pas these days.
Rocker Rod Stewart, 70, known for his well-oiled hip moves in his heyday, caused fans to do a double take as he shimmied through Sydney airport in a pair of unforgiving tight peach jeans.
The terribly tight trousers looked eye-wateringly uncomfortable and did little to draw attention away from his unmentionables as he greeted fans on Thursday.
The Wear It Well crooner, who is on tour of the southern hemisphere, wore a crisp white shirt with a cream jacket and colourful trainers and a snazzy belt to match.
He accessorised with a black beaded rosary necklace and, of course, his trademark spiky hair style.
Having enjoyed a spot of retail therapy, the Highgate-born singer also carried a paper shopping bag as he stopped to greet fans behind a pair of dark glasses.
But despite the flamboyant star's sartorial edict, he clearly still has what it takes when it comes to wooing women and is married to model Penny Lancaster, 43, with whom he shares two sons, Aiden, four, and Alistair, nine.
Rod has eight children - Sarah Streeter, 52, raised by adoptive parents, Kimberly and Sean Stewart from his first marriage to Alana Hamilton, Ruby, 27, from a relationship with model Kelly Emberg, Renee, 22, and Liam, 20, with second wife Rachel Hunter and Alastair and Aiden Stewart with Penny.
And the legendary singer has passed on his pearls of wisdom to his eldest son, Sean, advising him on how best to lure women.
Daily Mail 15/04/2015
He is certainly a youthful 70 year-old.
And, to prove it, Rod Stewart cut a trendy figure as he stepped out in New Zealand on Wednesday afternoon.
The chart-topper was pictured in Auckland as he continues to tour the southern hemisphere
The veteran singer/songwriter, who is married to Penny Lancaster, wore a crisp white shirt with a blue jacket and stone-coloured chinos.
He accessorised with some brown shoes and, of course, his trademark hair style.
Having enjoyed a spot of retail therapy, the crooner also carried some shopping bags from local boutiques in the city.
The sighting of Rod comes on the same day his eldest son, Sean, revealed that he taught him how to attract women

Rod Stewart took the lyrics to his classic hit ‘Sailing’ literally when he was ‘sailing, he was sailing, across the sea’ on Sydney Harbour on Thursday.
Rod Stewart and wife Penny Lancaster spent the afternoon on Sydney Harbour on board John Symond’s Xanadu as guests of Engelbert Humperdinck’s Sydney based manager Scott Dorsey and his wife Jo.
I absolutely adore touring in Australia and to get an opportunity to spend such a great day with family and friends on this amazing harbour was truly special and one I shall not forget anytime soon,” Rod said onboard.
Rod was with his wife Penny and two sons Allister and Aiden and Pennys mother Sally and personal trainer Gary.
Scott tells Noise11.com, “We pulled into a little beach near Tarrunga Zoo and took the little dingy over and played soccer with Rod and the kids on the beach. Very funny on lookers when they started to recognise him and see this floating gin palace soccer on beach.”
The menu: “Beautiful lunch of Moreton Bay bugs and prawns and oysters and some beautiful Australian wine,” Scott said.
Rod performed in Sydney on Wednesday. He will perform in the Hunter Valley and then Brisbane before heading to New Zealand next week for three more shows.
