Rock Leg­ends: Rod Ste­wart

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 8.30pm, Stu­dio De­scribed here as the ‘‘ ul­ti­mate sur­vivor’’ (his Lon­don street scored a Ger­man bomb 30 min­utes be­fore he was born on Jan­uary 10, 1945) and a mix of rocker, crooner and ro­man­tic lead, Rod Ste­wart has had luck on his side. At Twick­en­ham sta­tion one night in 1964, slightly drunk, he was play­ing Smoke­stack Light­nin’ on his har­mon­ica when Long John Baldry hap­pened by. Im­pressed by what he heard, he in­vited Ste­wart to join his band. A su­per­star was born. This doc­u­men­tary traces his ca­reer from reck­less youth to to­day — three wives, eight chil­dren (by five women) and a mul­ti­tude of hits and awards later.
