1998. Rod Stew­art. “Nev­er a Dull Moment”

This is the third album I record­ed with Rod Stew­art. It was orig­i­nal­ly released on vinyl in 1972…now on CD. It became a UK num­ber-one album (for two weeks) and reached num­ber two on the US Album chart the same year. The track, “You Wear It Well”, co-writ­ten by Stew­art and clas­si­cal gui­tarist Mar­tin Quit­ten­ton, was a smash hit (anoth­er UK No. 1; in USA No. 13), as well as “Twistin’ the Night Away”, a song orig­i­nal­ly record­ed by Sam Cooke.

I played piano on “Ital­ian Girls”, and bass on “I’d Rather Go Blind”. I could only stay a cou­ple of weeks (hence not being able to stay for the inside cov­er pho­to shoot) because I had to fly back to the states to take pos­ses­sion of a house Nicky Hop­kins was rent­ing me on Mel­rose Ave in Mill Val­ley. He had asked me to join a band he was get­ting togeth­er after he got back from a Rolling Stones tour. — with Mar­tin Quit­ten­ton, Rod Stew­art, Ian McLa­gan, Ron­nie Wood and Micky Waller.
