Rod Stewart - Rod Stewart Ready For Free Bus Pass

Rod Stewart can't wait to use his free bus pass.

The 66-year-old father-of-eight - whose daughter Kimberly is currently expecting her first child with actor Benicio Del Toro - became eligible to use public transport without paying in the UK when he turned 65 last January and can't wait to enjoy a day out in London with his friends.

He said: "I'm going to be a grandfather, I've been waiting for that for so long - that and getting my bus pass - the two things I was looking forward to getting.

"Will I use my bus pass? I intend to. I'm going to get on a bus and I'm going to go from Epping to Hackney with some of my mates. Treat them to a day out."

Rod - who is married to 40-year-old Penny Lancaster, with whom he has two sons, five-year-old Alastair and three-month-old Aiden - also admitted he is not a fan of modern technology and says his love of old-fashioned gadgets embarrasses his family.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Daybreak', he said: "I don't have an iPod and I don't have a mobile phone. The kid's are so embarrassed - we went to the beach the other day, I got my CD player and the BIG earphones and they're so cool with their little earphones."
