Rod Stewart "Thanks For The Memories"
"ALL THE PEOPLE I WOULD LIKE TO THANK"
FIRST : I would like to thank the late HANK [Winston] SKELTON [Deceased] for being my mentor. And I honestly could
never repay him for getting me started in the world of Showbiz'. I really do owe this man a great deal of gratitude.
SECOND : May I thank Bill Allen with whom I sometimes Co-wrote songs with, now sadly passed away.
THIRD : May I thank all these musicians that I had the pleasure to work with over the years.

BILLY IRWIN : BOBBY TELFORD [Deceased] : JIMMY McMASTER : TOM IRWIN : STANLEY CARSON : JOHN CHESNEY: RUSSELL MILLAR : AND HARRY BECKINSALE.
I would like to give a special thanks to my old music teacher at Carrick Intermediate School [now an Academy] Mr Spence.
*I would also like to give a massive thanks to the following musicians*
