Rod Stewart has signed a deal with Random House to pen a tell-all memoir due out next year. Stewart says that he intends to "hold nothing back" in the book, and will be rather explicit in writing about his prolific love life. "Forget skeletons in the closet; this one's going to be socks and knickers under the bed," the singer said in a statement.

In addition to opening up about his string of romances with various blonde bombshells, Stewart's book is likely to touch on the various phases of his long-running career in rock, his battle with thyroid cancer and his youth in North London.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
