Rod Stewart fixes potholes outside house because he can’t use Ferrari
ir Rod Stewart has picked up a shovel to repair potholes near his home after complaining that no one else could be “bogged down to do it” and that his Ferrari couldn’t drive down the road.
The 77-year-old veteran rock star shared videos to his Instagram of him and a crew shoveling gravel from a lorry into a slew of potholes in an area of Harlow, Essex.
Sir Rod explained he decided to take matters into his own hands after an ambulance had a burst tire and other cars were “smashing their cars” due to the damaged road.
In a video shared on Instagram, he can be seen wearing a tracksuit and a hi-vis vest singing and shoveling gravel, and says, “I’m fixing the street where I live because no one can bother to do so. .”
In another clip, he demonstrated the extent of the damage and added: “It’s the road condition near my home in Harlow and it’s been that way for ages.
“People denigrate their cars. The other day there was an ambulance with a flat tire. My Ferrari can’t go through here at all.
“So me and the boys thought we would come and do it ourselves. We are filling the holes when millions and millions of pounds have been spent on the M11. »
He captioned the post: ‘Working for a living, filling holes is good for the soul!’
The singer received praise from his followers for his efforts, including his daughters Kimberly and Ruby who commented with heart and clapping emojis.
A fan told the rock star not to hurt himself because he had tickets for his concert in June.
Sir Rod released his latest album The Tears Of Hercules in 2021, which peaked at number five on the UK Albums Chart.
He will begin touring the US and UK from June, including playing a number of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The London-born singer is a member of the US Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and was knighted by the Queen in 2016.
Her hits include Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, You’re In My Heart, Hot Legs and Maggie May.
