John, Mercury And Stewart Considered Performing Together

Rod Stewart has revealed he once considered forming a novelty supergroup with his friends, Elton and Freddie Mercury.

The rocker says the idea came to him while the trio was hanging out at Queen's rented Bel Air mansion in Los Angeles.

In his new memoir, Rod: The Autobiography, the singer says he "adored" Mercury and thought it would be great to team up with him and Elton onstage and in the studio.

He writes, "Elton and I spent a long evening there (in the rented mansion) with Freddie Mercury, a sweet and funny man... discussing the possibility of the three of us forming a supergroup.

"The name we had in mind was Nose, Teeth & Hair, a tribute to each of our remarked-upon physical attributes.

"The general idea was that we could appear dressed like the Beverley Sisters. Somehow this project never came to anything."
