ABSTRACT
AGEING rocker Rod Stewart was once known for his womanising ways but the singer has revealed he was addicted to steroids in the Eighties, which left him with a shrunken manhood. The 68-year-old Maggie Mae lothario admitted he started abusing the medication in the hope of soothing his vocal chords before gigs. And while the steroids offered a temporary aid to relieve the father of eight's strained voice, they also played havoc with his body - in particular, his privates. Speaking in an interview with Mojo music magazine, he said: 'I let myself down on tours in the late Eighties when I was addicted to steroids. In those days we didn't have in-ear monitors and the band kept getting louder and drunker, and I kept blowing my voice out. 'The steroids will take down the swelling in any membrane.
