Sir Rod Stewart has confessed that he now considers some of his tracks inappropriate and believes that ''everything was different'' when he began as a musician.
Sir Rod Stewart admits some of his music has become dated in light of the #MeToo movement.
The 73-year-old rock legend has confessed that he now considers some of his tracks to be inappropriate, but he explained that ''everything was different'' when he began as a musician.
Asked whether some of his most famous tracks would be considered inappropriate in the modern day, Rod said: ''Oh absolutely, I couldn't write a song like 'Tonight's The Night' now even if I wanted to.
''But you know 'Hot Legs' is even worse - everything was different then, the clothes, the attitude, even the recording.''
The #MeToo movement - which started on social media - is designed to fight sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Rod has embraced the new movement through a track on his latest album, 'Look In Her Eyes', which calls on young men to be respectful towards women.
He told the Independent: ''It's saying: Come on guys back off, you don't have to get drunk and throw her over a park bench to try and get your way.''
Although the 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain' singer is an advocate of the #MeToo campaign, he claims to have never witnessed any inappropriate behaviour during his time in the music business.
''I've got six women in my band and I look after them all like they're princesses, but I can't quite answer your question. I wasn't around; I didn't see it, let me put it down to that.''
His new album Underneath It All is out now.
