Did Rod Stewart make a record with members of the crew of H.M.S Ark Royal?

No, Rod Stewart did not make a record with the crew of HMS Ark Royal. The Crew made a single singing Sailing and the last farewell which was a song by Rodger Whittaker, the music to this record was done by the Royal Marine band stationed onboard, Some of the crew went on Top of the Pops to sing the record, I think it was in the top 40 but I'm not sure what position it reached, None of the crew were paid in money but we did get 3 cans of beer, any money made went to the King George fund for sailors. Rod Stewart did visit the ship when we were alongside in Devonport with his girlfriend/wife. I was given a copy of the crew version of sailing, I remember it was a blue 45 vinyl disc, I don't know what happened to it I think it must have been lost moving but I hope that answers your question.

Did the band Kiss ever do a Rod Stewart song?

No, KISS has never recorded or performed a Rod Stewart song. You were most likely informed by a source that did not have all of the facts. However, Paul Stanley did write a song heavily influenced by Rod Stewart, entitled Hard Luck Woman. This particular song was intended to be forwarded to Rod Stewart in hopes of him recording the track. Rod Stewart, who I'm sure was aware of this song, never moved forward as the song was eventually offered to Peter Criss to sing lead vocals. Hard Luck Woman was released on the 1976 Destroyer record. Hope this cleared up things. - Nex Leffel

The person above me has all the facts correct except it was recorded on the Rock and Roll Over album in 1976

Who are papes of Newcastle rod makers?

'Papes of Newcastle' was actually an individual who hand-made fishing rods in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the north-east of England around 1930 / 1940. He operated from a shop premises on Grey Street in the city centre (which today is still in use a shop (Bagnall and Kirkwood) that retails fishing tackle and guns, although there is no connection with Pape himself). Typically, he would 'buy in' rod blanks from manufacturers and finish them off with handles, binding on rings, fitting ferrules etc.

He died in a motor accident (I believe) around 1940. (Info supplied is from enquiries made locally, as I live in Newcastle ... there is little or no information available via Google etc)

Well, that was on the "Footloose, and fancy free" album, he had a pink shirt on, on the cover, and the best I can do is the, well, for some reason I think his first album came out in "74", and "footloose" I think his second, in "77". Here come experts, but I think I amreally close. I know the Jeff Beck did some work with old Rod, and my even have done the guiter work on that particular song.......Chuck.

Rodstewartshow says : Sorry to correct the previous contributor who correctly stated that the album was "Foot Loose and Fancy Free" recorded in 1977. The single was released in 1978 and the guitarists on the album were Jim Cregan, Steve Cropper, Billy Peek, Gary Grainger and Fred Tackett. The album cover shows Rod wearing a white or cream coloured shirt with a pale pink jacket, and this was actually Rod's 8th solo album, the first being in 1969 "An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down" (UK title) or "The Rod Stewart Album" (US title).
