MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: ROD STEWART - MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY
Stewart also commits sacrilege, doing one of those duets with the deceased, grafting on some Ella Fitzgerald vocals to What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? This really must stop, and fast; there's no reason for it, and it's basically grave-robbing. He obviously thinks he's in the same class as a singer, and that isn't the case. Oops, guess I'm showing which Rod I like better. The only present here is a download code for a track from his next album coming in the spring. It says it's going to be a ROCK album (the italics are theirs). I guess I'm not the only one demanding an end to this syrup. I couldn't bear to listen though, I'd rather live with the hope and hear the whole album, than be disappointed early.
