In Imagine...Rod Stewart: Can't Stop Me Now, Alan Yentob visits legendary rocker Rod Stewart at his LA home as he releases his first album of new material in almost 20 years - an album which, instantly shot to the top of the charts
In a series of conversations, 'Rod the Mod' looks back to the 1960s, where he started out with groundbreaking acts like Steampacket and Jeff Beck, going on to front Faces from 1969. In an unmissable sequence, Imagine captures Rod with his soulmate and mischievous partner in crime, Ronnie Wood.
The band’s offstage antics and wildly energetic shows became legendary, as did Rod’s love affairs with a string of models, actresses and Bond girls. In tandem, his solo career - songs like Maggie May, You Wear it Well, and Sailing - propelled him to global superstardom. Whether pouting and gorgeous in silk harem pants and eyeliner, or kicking a football around on Top Of The Pops, Rod quickly became British rock music’s most popular Jack the Lad.
The 1980s were a critical disaster, but his constant reinvention has given him a career lasting half a century. From Beatnik to Mod, from Folkie to Disco Artist, from Glam Rocker to, most recently, a crooner of American standards, it has been a remarkable musical journey and one that deserves reappraisal.
Featuring rare archive footage and interviews with friends, family and musicians, Imagine presents a hugely entertaining romp with one of the most exciting artists in pop music history.
