“Hot Legs” is a single by Rod Stewart. Stewart included the song on his 1977 album Foot Loose & Fancy Free. The 1977 single performed moderately well on the United States Hot 100 (#28), and well on the UK Singles Chart (#5). In the UK, “Hot Legs” and “I Was Only Joking” charted together as a double A-side. Billboard Magazine described “Hot Legs” as a “blistering blues rocker” comparable to the best Rolling Stones songs. In 1993, Stewart recorded a live version during his MTV Unplugged session which appeared on the album Unplugged…and Seated. Artists who have recorded cover versions of “Hot Legs” include Tom Jones, Tina Turner, and American rock band Orgy. Bon Jovi have occasionally covered this song on the Circle Tour. Since the original recording/video, the lyrics in the last verse have been changed. The lead guitar that is prominent throughout the song was performed by Billy Peek, a Saint Louis, Missouri native who was in Rod Stewart’s band in the mid-seventies.
