Tucson mayor: 'banned' Rod Stewart can return

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The mayor of Tucson doesn't exactly know what Rod Stewart did that got him banned from a Tucson hotel 40 years ago.

But Mayor Jonathan Rothschild wants the sexagenarian rocker to know that he can return to the city.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Rothschild reached out to Stewart recently when the British television show "Loose Women" contacted the mayor about Stewart's standing in Tucson.

Rothschild wrote, "while I cannot speak to any legal obligations he may have, I can say that Mr. Stewart is welcome in our city, and we would be happy to have him visit."

According to his biography, Stewart and his former band mates in Faces trashed several rooms and a miniature train at an unidentified local hotel in retribution for the hotel bar being temporarily closed.
