Veteran singer Rod Stewart is convinced he should be next in line to receive a knighthood because so many of his contemporaries have already landed the coveted title. The Maggie May hitmaker can't understand why Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and veteran crooner Tom Jones have both been made a 'Sir' by Queen Elizabeth II ahead of him. However, Stewart insists he will not let the snub upset him, telling Britain's Radio Times, "Mick doesn't pay taxes here (in Britain), and Tom lives in America. If my time comes, it will. And if it doesn't, I'm not bothered." The singer adds of the British monarch, "The Queen and I have one thing in common. The same hairstyle for 45 years."
