Shindig! Issue 73
At the very height of his fame, an elfin ’60s mod pop star who’d become a dapper ’70s rock icon, tired of the hustle and bustle of the industry and reinvented himself as a rock ’n’ roll gypsy. “i knew it was time to leave the faces when rod started buying his clothes in miss selfridge.” left the bright lights of the city for a ramshackle country farm, donned waist coat, neckerchief and work boots and penned plaintive folk-based tunes, caring little for making hit records. looks back at the halcyon era during which lane ditched stadiums for circus tents and followed his dream.
