Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck Reunion? (Top Story)
Stewart told Billboard he hoped to record blues and country albums. "And I may record with Jeff Beck, and I may have to write a few songs… I've got a meeting with Jeff in a couple weeks in London, and we're going to see if we can work together and see what each of us wants to do. We're a little bit older now and we can tolerate each other."
Stewart said his songwriting style had become much looser since the Jeff Beck Group days. "Songwriting, let me tell you, was something that was thrust upon me," he said. "When we were in the Jeff Beck Group, we said, 'OK, let's see if we can do something original,' because everybody was trying to write songs then. This was the late '60s. Woody [Ronnie Wood] started strumming and he said, 'Would you write the lyrics?' And I said, 'Me? What? I've never written a song in my life!' So we wrote a couple songs as the Jeff Beck Group and we never looked back." -
