How to Buy Rod Stewart

Fred Dellar, MOJO, May 1998

"A WHITE person can sing the blues with just as much conviction as a negro. All these negro singers singing about 'walking down the railroad track . . .' They've never walked down a railroad track in their lives. Nor have I. You've got more to sing the blues about in the Archway Road than on any railroad track I know."
