“Χαμός στο Twitter” και όχι μόνο, για τις δηλώσεις του Rod Stewart περί χρεοκοπίας της κυβέρνησης των Tories. Προσωπικά δεν απέχω απ’ το να είμαι σίγουρος ότι έχει δίκιο, στο κάτω-κάτω ο Sir Rod είναι ευφυέστατος. Ενδεικτική αυτού η αυτοβιογραφία του, από τις πιο καλογραμμένες και απολαυστικές που έχω διαβάσει – χωρίς να είμαι καν φαν της σόλο καριέρας του.
Ακούμε τη σπουδαία ερμηνεία του στο all-time classic των Oscar Hammerstein & Jerome Kern. Από το πρώτο άλμπουμ των Jeff Beck Group, πιστωμένο στον μεγάλο κιθαρίστα.

“Hell on Twitter” and beyond, for Rod Stewart’s statements about the bankruptcy of Tories’ government. Personally, I am not far from being sure that he is right, after all, Sir Rod is super intelligent. Indicative of this is his autobiography, one of the most well-written and enjoyable I ‘ve read – without even being a fan of his solo career.
We hear his great performance in Osca


❝ Ol’ man river
That ol’ man river
He don’t say nothing
But he must know something
That ol’ man river
He just keeps rolling along
He don’t plant tater’s
And we all know he don’t pick cotton
But them that plant’em are soon forgotten
That ol’ man river
He just keeps rolling along
Oh yes he does
You and me we sweat and toil
Our bodies all naked and racked with pain
Now listen
Lift that bar you better tote that bail
And if ya get a little drunk
You’ll land in jail
I’m so weary
I’m sick of trying
I’m tried of livin’
But afraid of dyin’
That that god darn old river
He just keeps rolling along
Keep on rolling along
Keep on rolling along
Ol’ man river don’t you stop your way
Keep on running from the north
The south, the east or west ❞
