Clips From Last Night: Rod Stewart's cancer scare: "It did bring me down to earth"

Last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight" featured an interview with legendary rocker Rod Stewart. Stewart, who recently became a father again, spoke openly about women, his past partying ways and more. But he also got serious when talking about cancer. "It did bring me down to earth," he told Piers Morgan. "I kept thinking 'what am I going to do? I can't sing.'...I was frightened. Really scared."

Below, what Rod Stewart finds sexy about a woman:

Said Stewart: "It's an inner thing, it's a look in the eye...almost a slight sluttiness, just a touch of it."

      I wondered how Piers would do following the long reign of Larry King. I have watched with fascination each week as Peirs begins his new journey at CCN. I must say iIhave been delighted by his superb interviewing skills and the manner in which he clarifies questions and presents them in a manner that does not let guests off the hook. We as viewers wanted to be enlightened, Piers does that. He treats his audience as an extension of him....he gives us credit for being educated and knowledgeable. This interview was fun to watch but also it disclosed things about Rod Stewart that many of us did not know. Rod was an ordinary bloke albeit a rich one....who suffers the same way as we do...and you gotta like a guy who loves bad he isnt a Man Unitied fan instead! Nice job Piers you inspire and I like yours style all the way up here in Whitehorse Yukon. M

      Do you think Rod was sincere?

    I hope he makes a really great next album, and I hope he puts the song "Let it Be" in it. Or writes something similar. That will help with the holy Wars.

    The Rod Stewart interview was a real treat! Great humor from a down to earth rock star from a modest N. London background. Great story. More of this. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks.

    I'm not buying the Rod comment that "he only wore woman's panties once" while with Britt Ekland. I was the photographer on the 1975 tour and you can see a photo of Rod on my website. Check the one of him with the white jumpsuit pulled down below his waist. What men undies had a g-string like that in 1975? WOMENS

    I have a new found respect and admiration for Rod Stewart – his down to earth easy going interview gave a candid insight into a humble man who found his way to the stars. Rod, I have a news clip from your early 1970's Vancouver, BC concert – great memory. Nice work Piers you guys had a good time doing the interview and it was good to watch. I agree with some comment on this thread – keep Trump and politics out of the picture and you will have a good thing going. Thanks!

    Finally an interview with Rod that is differant, Great job Piers! I have been a fan for years and have been to over 130 concerts. Went two two just this week. You asked great questions. And finally got him to speak of the brake up with Rachel. I will never forgive her for how she went about leaving him. Very classless if you ask me. Keep up the good work Piers!

    I missed this interview! I have been searching for it, but with the world as it it, the interview kept getting put off. I have loved Rod since I as little, now I'm 42. Would love to see this repeated on the tv and/or available online where I could view this! And would like for it to be promoted better of what night he's gonna be on there!..Thanks.

    I caught the Piers Morgan/Rod Stewart interviews on one of the late night repeats yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. My mom, however, who is a huge Rod Stewart fan, missed it. Will it be on again? I really hope so.

    Prince Charles could tell you how lovely landscape gardening can be! And if you cared about cheese and this sort of things – Hhmm!
