Singer Rod Stewart has had his share of controversy during his legendary career, and this one was no exception.
On September 8, 2005, Stewart was ordered to pay $1.1 million to a Las Vegas casino for missing a New Year's concert back in 2000. According to the singer, the reason he missed the performance is because he had no voice. He had just undergone surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid tumor, and his voice hadn't recovered in time for the concert. A rather costly sum for laryngitis.
Enjoy the music!
