Favorite parts have to be the drums and Maggie Bell's backing vocals. Amazing mix of blues and folk. #rodstewart   15

Went to see Rod in Falkirk at the week-end. Great gig but nothing as good as this. Sorry, no decent vids available via TIMJ   13

For Mick Waller's drumming, because I've worn out two copies and because hardly anyone makes music like that anymore. -Dave Marsh   5

"I couldn't quote you no Dickens, Shelley, or Keats, cuz it's all been said before." This song stems out of a collaboration between Rod Stewart and Ron Woods (who later joined The Rolling Stones) when they were with the band Faces. Woods and Stewart often shared a hotel room, but they'd both bring groupies in, and to allow an illusion of privacy, they'd stack their luggage between the beds. However they could still hear each other so it often didn't work out ideally for all concerned. Stewart explains in more detail in his autobiography. Anyway, this song stems from their youthful experiences traveling and jamming together, and how the ladies made them realize they were kinda full of themselves. Some people claim the words are racist and sexist, and they're probably right. Still, it's a kickass irreverent tune that's both in control and out of control at the same time, with great backup vocals from Maggie Bell.   6
