The BBC banned Rod Stewart from singing one of the songs of his new new album because of its ‘anti-English overtones’ the singer revealed.
The song Grace, sung by the Celtic faithful on match day is a very heart breaking and poignant song that many have grown to love over the years.
It was after Rod Stewart heard a packed Celtic Park singing it that he knew he had to put it on his album.
So when he wanted to sing the song in front of the audience for the Graham Nortom show he was told on no uncertain terms that it wouldn’t be allowed.
The singer said
‘They won’t let me sing “Grace” because of its Irish, anti-English overtones in the song.
‘Forget about it, it’s one of the greatest love songs ever written. The guy goes to his death 15 minutes the next morning after he’s been married.’
The BBC have become a joke over the years who claim to be the pillars of impartiality.
They continue to let people report untruths to counteract fact on a daily basis in the name of ‘balance’.
Rod Stewart did play another song from his new album on the show and his Celtic drum sit proudly behind him.
