As Lisa Robinson states in her introduction for this interview, Rod Stewart may be the quintessential British rock and roll singer. The discussion that follows confirms that it's true, as the two talk about his love fashion, money, women, and nights out with the boys. The editing contained here leaves behind statements stressing Stewart's flamboyance and conceit, leaving us to wonder if the splicing results in a misrepresentation or if he really does have one of the biggest egos in the business.
