Few rock stars have been the subject of more outrageous rumors about their decadent lifestyle than Rod Stewart. Remember that one about the stomach pumping that you heard on the playground in sixth grade? In his new memoir, 'Rod: The Autobiography," Stewart finally addresses that infamous story and spreads something else unbelievable, that he and Ron Wood used to insert cocaine through his rear end.

"[W]e started buying anticold capsules from the chemist's," he wrote. "Separating the two halves of the capsules, replacing their contents with a pinch of cocaine, and then taking the capsules anally, where, of course, the human body being a wonderful thing, they would dissolve effortlessly into the system."

While this may sound like typical rock star excess, there's actually a valid reason for it. By snorting cocaine, Stewart was worried that he was putting his nasal passages - and thus his famous singing voice - at risk. In other words, he stuck cocaine up his butt for the fans, man.

As for the other story, Stewart claims that it was started by publicist Tony Toon as a form of revenge after Stewart fired him. "[Toon] fed the press a story in which, as a consequence of an evening spent orally servicing a gang of sailors in a gay bar in San Diego, I had been required to check into a hospital emergency room to have my stomach pumped," he continued. "I have never orally pleasured even a solitary sailor...And I have never had my stomach pumped, either of naval-issue semen nor of any other kind of semen."
