Rod Stewart - 'Merry Christmas, Baby'

The latest in an endless succession of I-could-not-give-a-shit-any-more covers albums

Photo: Press
There’s only one essential Rod Stewart purchase this Christmas: his autobiography. The hilarious, frank and self-deprecating story of how one of the great rock vocalists rose to fame and fortune, making fabulous music along the way before settling into his role as vendor of an endless succession of I-could-not-give-a-shit-any-more covers albums, of which this is the latest. Mary J Blige, Ella bloody Fitzgerald and the odious Cee Lo (see above) all phone in a hand, but… look, just get the book, OK? It’s brilliant, and this isn’t.
