It's not just anybody who can take an uncanny physical and vocal resemblance to Rod Stewart and make it work. But for Rob Caudill, the former frontman for Memphis bands like the Breaks and the Willies, it's all right, it's all right, it's all right.
Another former Memphian, Joe Walsh (the real Eagle), once told Caudill that he could make a boatload of cash doing sexy, high-energy impressions of Stewart, and from that odd bit of seemingly bad advice an unlikely career was born. These days Caudill's a traveling showman making women scream and throw their panties in lounges all across America. The infatuation begins when the real fake Rod Stewart comes home and comes to life this weekend at the New Daisy.
Rob Caudill: A Tribute to Rod Stewart, 7 p.m. Saturday, February 4th, New Daisy Theatre, $10
