ROCKER ROD IS ON TOP OF WORLD 19 October 2006
ROD Stewart has notched up his second No1 album in a row in the US - seven years after bosses wrote off his recording career.
The veteran star's latest CD, Still The Same...Great Rock Classics of Our Time, shifted more than 180,000 copies last week to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200.
He beat American rock band Evanescence's latest album, Wind-up, which sold just over 160,000, into second spot.
Rod, 61, was dumped by Warner Bros in 1999 after the failure of his album Human.
But his career was revived with the help of US record guru Clive Davis, who signed Rod to his J Records label.
His four albums of pop and jazz standards, The Great American Songbook, then went on to sell 15 million CDs worldwide.
Still The Same is Rod's second consecutive US No. 1 after Thanks for the Memory - Volume 4 of the Great American Songbook.
Rod has already started work on a second album of rock standards due for release next year.
Great Rock Classics of Our Time Volume 2 is set to include Eric Clapton's Lay Down Sally, Neil Young's Only Love Can Break Your Heart and Kris Kristofferson's Me and Bobby McGee, which Rod says is a favourite of his kids.
Rod's four albums in his Great American Songbook series have earned a whole new legion of fans.
Still the Same, which features songs by Van Morrison, Badfinger, Cat Stevens, Elvin Bishop and Bob Dylan, is released in the UK on Monday
