This trend of past-their-prime pop singers turning to Songbook Standards started with Linda Ronstadt, who at least was a fine singer and an excellent musician overall. Inspired by her seemingly effortless performances, some other singers have tried their hand, with varying success. Rod Stewart, however, brings nothing to this music. For example, his duet with Cher on "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" sets a new standard for tastelessness. It the musical equivalent of watching gorillas trash the Mona Lisa. I would rather shave my head with a cheese grater than suffer through any more of Stewart's American Songbook trainwrecks. He obviously has no respect for this great music in the least.
