Sir Rod says to Bravo: “I had eaten and was suffering from diarrhea. I felt really weak, so the organizers have a man turned on. That gave me a prick and then I felt fine.”
The show that the rocker gave up on Copacabana Beach in the Brazilian city is in the Guinness Book of World Records ended up with the largest audience full of rockliefhebbers.
Stewart admits that he had to laugh at the fact that the sound for the people who later were very delayed. “Every 200 metres there were speakers. By the time the people that are further away stood the last note heard of the song that I sang, I was already in the car on the way home.”
