The Rod Stewart Tribute featuring Rick Saint James
As a follower of British Rock and Blues, a show saluting that music came quite naturally. The Rod Stewart part of the show received the biggest reception and became the show that Rick St. James would take around the world.
The show covers Rod’s career and his influences including his Greatest Hits, Rock n Roll, Motown, Soul, Rhythm and Blues classics, the American Songbook by request. While in Las Vegas, Rick teamed with Carmine Appice to put together a Rod Stewart Group with all the original touring band members that backed Rod from 1976 to 1982. His look and voice appealed to Carmine and they recruited former Rod Stewart bandmates Danny Johnson (Alice Cooper), Paul Warren (Tina Turner, Joe Cocker), Phil Chen (Jeff Beck) and Jimmy Crespo (Aerosmith) among others.
