Rod Stewart revealed that after a few years of snide remarks, he and old friend Elton John are back on good terms, according to The Daily Mail. The pair, who have spent decades winding each other up with good natured barbs and elaborate pranks, came to a head when Rod publicly slammed Elton's “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, intimating it was a cash grab.
Rod appeared on The Harry Redknapp Show podcast, and shed light on the situation, explaining that the two are “mates again” and adding, “I was a bit spiteful when he announced his tour. I regret it, I really do regret it. So we're mates again now. I do love him. A man apologizes. We've just made up as friends again, me and Elton. We've always been fierce enemies. . . through the years, but it's always been at a playful level. But we had the worst row, like a married couple. It went on forever.”
Rod, the 76-year-old father of eight, talked candidly about his health, revealing, “I've just had a full knee replacement and I've also had an ankle fusion — all thanks to football.”
