Rain, yesterday.

Rock superstar Rod Stewart is the latest musician to find himself in the sites of a litigious music fan - and all because of recent torrential rain.

Rod, 66, shot to fame in the 1970's with solo hits like Maggie May and You Wear It Well and as the singer with good-time rockers The Faces whose hits included Stay With Me and Cindy Incidentally.

But he is about to find himself in court answering a case brought by Mr Graeme Literal-Gitt, of Horbury, near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Mr Literal-Gitt explained: "I had to go down the shops this morning to pick up a few bits and pieces. It was absolutely chucking it down - stair-rods, it was.

"So I put on my old raincoat and set off for the supermarket. But I hadn't got halfway there before I was absolutely soaked - the raincoat was letting water through everywhere!

"According to an album I've got by Rod Stewart, An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down and I believed him!

"Well, it's clearly not the case and I intend to take Mr Stewart to court for the cost of dry cleaning the clothes that were very nearly ruined by my old raincoat letting me down."

Mr Gitt was in the news earlier this year when he announced he was to sue US singer/songwriter Paul Simon for inaccuracies in songs such as 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover and The Only Living Boy In New York.
