  • There are so many famous people scattered through your story.

  • Are you nervous about any of them reading this book?

  • A bit. There's not many nasty stories.

  • I put the record straight. Tina Turner and I had a falling out at the VH1 divas thing.

  • She went and did the Oprah show and kind of bad mouthed me and said I was a spoiled child.

  • In fact I wanted to put the record straight on what really happened.

  • I think at the end of the day, we were both culpable of- you know.

  • I shouldn't have done what I did, but she drove me to it.

  • So it was her fault.

  • Billy Joel, who I love, and toured with three times, fell asleep at the piano.

  • At Madison Square Garden, during Piano Man.

  • I learned more about Rod Stewart in this book than I-

  • Oh, Rod Stewart and I were always so much fun together.

  • We were rivals in the sense that we were both happening at the same time. He a little bit before me.

  • And we've always had a great sense of humour with each other.

  • We've always played practical jokes on each other and we've always had such a laugh.

  • I've had more laughs with Rod than anybody else probably.

  • I'm not showing with you dressed like that, I can assure you.

  • Why not? With that on? You're not going with that hat on?

  • Why not, look at you? It looks like Dusty Springfield in a nightmare.

  • But it goes quite far, the Earls Court blimp.

  • Well he had a blimp because he was playing Earls Court for about five nights, which I wasn't happy about,

  • the fact that he was playing for five nights.

  • And I was staying at The Inn on the Park, which is now the Four Seasons in London.

  • And I could see it, hanging in the sky.

  • So I rang up John Reed and said 'Rod's got a blimp by Earls Court, can we get it down?'

  • and I didn't have to say anything else and he mysteriously got it, I think shot down.

  • Different times. The next time I looked, the next day it wasn't there.

  • So I rang Rod up and said 'Oh dear, can you see your balloon? Your blimp from where you are?'

  • 'Oh yes, dear I can. Isn't it fabulous.' And he looked out the window and said 'You bastard.'

  • And then the next year I played Olympia and I had a big banner right across the road,

  • where Olympia is. And I swear to god it was up for about thirty seconds and he'd already had it down.

  • It went up at 2'o'clock in the morning, it was down by 2'o'clock and 30 seconds.

  • Wonderful memories.

  • He and I have laughed so much over the years. He has a great sense of humour.

  • We've both got the same sense of humour.

  • Now, some people obviously aren't still around.

  • I didn't realise you were very close with John Lennon. Yes. I met him when he was just

  • finishing his crazy phase and going into his laughing phase. He'd just done a rock and

  • roll album, which was a very hard album for him to do with Phil Spector. I think he had

  • a lot of issues at that point. He was with May Pang at the time, he'd broken off with

  • Yoko and we more or less hung out together for a year and a half, two years. He sang

  • on my records, I played on his. We did a lot of drugs together. But we had so many laughs,

  • him and Rod Stewart are the two people I'd probably laugh with the most.

  • And Freddie Mercury.

  • There's a very New York story about you and him, holed up in a hotel room. Oh,

  • yes. It was like we were doing cocaine and it was like 1:30 in the morning and there

  • was a ring on the doorbell and I thought 'oh, who's this.' So it took me about ten minutes

  • to creep over to the eye hole and look through the door. It was at the Sherry Netherland

  • hotel and I went to him 'Andy Warhol' and John said.. And so we didn't answer the door

  • and so I said 'Why didn't you want to let Andy in?' and he said 'He's always got a bloody

  • camera with him.' Nothing private with Andy. So I thought god, he wouldn't let Andy Warhol

  • in but that's because we were high as a kite.

There are so many famous people scattered through your story.
