James Corden has been taking a number of celebs for some Carpool Karaoke recently – and this time around it was the turn of Rod Stewart.
In case you missed it earlier this week, this section of The Late Late Show involves Corden picking up stars and driving around whilst singing songs and asking questions. The clip of Rod has since gone viral on the web, where it is continuing to amass an avalanche of plays.
Corden was curious about Stewart’s rock star lifestyle. The first question he asks is: “What’s the most rock ‘n’ roll experience of your life? What’s been the moment of your life when you’ve been like ‘Yeah, ok. This is a rock ’n’ roll moment’?”
As you’d expect, Rod has got many a moment like that, and replies: “Oh, I don’t know. There’s been so many. I mean, we were outrageous with The Faces. I mean, the things we all did.“
But Corden wants to dig a little deeper: “In what way?”
Stewart’s response is priceless: “Just drinking and shagging and a-drinking and a-shagging basically, you know. That’s what we did and smashing up hotel rooms.”
Corden: “Did you go proper TV out the window?”
Stewart: “Oh absolutely, yeah.”
Corden: “Now, why is that? What is it about bands in hotels that you go, ‘Lets’ throw the TV out the window’?
Stewart: “Mostly it came around because we weren’t getting the respect we deserved. We paid for our hotel rooms, we didn’t get the room service or anything, you know. And we’d just didn’t get any respect.”
In the video, which features A$AP Rocky, Rod also reveals that The Faces were banned from every Holiday Inn. You can watch the clip below.
Rod Stewart – we salute you.
