Tony Bennett: Rod Stewart Sings Like a Girl


Tony Bennett: Rod Stewart Sings Like a Girl


Claiming that Rod Stewart is not as good as Nat Cole and Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett says his fellow musician has 'a kind of a female voice.'

Legendary crooner Tony Bennett is unimpressed with Rod Stewart's efforts at covering pop standards - insisting the former Faces frontman sings like a girl. Stewart has released four of his Great American Songbook albums since 2002, on which he tackles classic show tunes and traditional tracks.

But Bennett has taken a swipe at Stewart's cover versions, insisting they expose weaknesses in his vocals. Bennett says, "It's not as good as Nat Cole or Frank Sinatra. He has a kind of a female voice. It's not definitive performances. The game is really how can you own a performance of a song? And that's the game of communicating as a performer - to own that song that you're doing."

Rod Stewart himself hasn't commented on Tony Bennett's statement.

    Oh, you're just jealous Bennett you jerk! We all know that Rod Stewart is one of the greatest vocalists ever, not to mention that he is a wonderful performer and songwriter loved by millions (if not more). His perfect voice is amazing in its adaptability and is incredibly sexy (just like Rod is). We LOVE YOU, ROD! You can do anything! Rock on!
