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.

                                         *I would also like to give a massive thanks to the following musicians*

 

These entertainers gave me the opportunity to work with them, either as a support act or in some other very small way and allowed me so many wonderful memories that I will cherish.
