During the late Sixties, the Small Faces, a band of mod rockers who embraced soul and psychedelia, changed when Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood joined the band renamed Faces. The group took the Seventies by storm.
They say that any two individuals could be connected through at most five acquaintances.
During this time, in a life lived separate from my own before I knew him, my husband drove a taxi in London. He picked up various members of the band. He told me Rod was a shy, very polite young man, seven years younger than himself.

I am bound to everyone on this planet by a trail of six people. In this case, my connection to Rod Stewart is closer through the link of my husband.
In 1971, I lived in a cottage in Australia with an attached craft shop. I used to sit and spin wool from one of our flock of colored sheep while I listened to his songs. Little did I know, my life was about to change. After the failure of my marriage, I moved to London as a nanny. The following year, I met a man who charmed me enough to let down my guard. We've been married for 25 years.
I love the joy of life, Rod shows—so similar to my husband. There's something about the men born in London during the time before and after WW2's hardship.
