Rod Stewart – Biografija

Rod StewartRod Stewart – Roderick David „Rod“ Stewart, britanski je rock pop i blues pjevač, rođen 10. januara 1945. godine u Londonu (Engleska).
Neki od njegovih hitova u dugugodišnjoj karijeri su: ‘Maggie May’, ‘You Wear It Well’, ‘Sailing’, ‘Tonight’s the Night’ (Gonna Be Alright), ‘I Don’t Want to Talk About It’, ‘Hot Legs’, ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’, ‘Downtown Train’, ‘Some Guys Have All the Luck’, ‘Young Turks’, ‘This Old Heart of Mine’, ‘Forever Young’, ‘My Heart Can’t Tell You No’ i ‘Rhythm of My Heart’.

Školu je napustio sa 15 godina, i radio kod oca na sitotisku, tad je i silno želio postati fudbaler i igrao je u klubu Brentford F.C, zbog toga je cijeli život bio vatreni navijač Škotske nogometne reprezentacije i kluba Celtic.

Muzikom se počeo baviti ranih 1960-ih nastupajući kao pjevač u brojnim tadašnjim rock sastavima. Solo pjevač postao je 1969. godine u novom sastavu Faces koji je osnovan od tri člana Small Faces i dva bivša člana Jeff Beck Group Ronnie Wooda i samog Rod Stewarta.
Sastav se okrenuo više bluesu koji je odgovarao baršunasto hrapavom Stewartovu glasu i odmah privukao pažnju publike na sebe.
Prvi solo album izdao je 1969. godine ‘An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down’, a u Sjevernoj Americi se zvao ‘The Rod Stewart Album’. Stewart je tek nakon svog trećeg izdanog albuma ‘Every Picture Tells A Story’ dobio status rock soliste. Status zvijezde potvrdio je i sa istovremeno izdanom singl pločom ‘Maggie May’ koja se ubrzo popela na #1 u Britaniji i Sjedinjenim Državama.
Gitarist Ron Wood puno je pomogao Stewartu kod komponovanja pjesama za njegov prvi solo album. Zbog raka štitne žlijezde 1999. godine u junu je 2000. operisan, pošto je operacija bila rizična za njegov slavni hrapavi glas nakon postoperativne terapije morao je napustiti pjevanje po koncertima, danas je angažiran u zakladi „City Of Hope Foundation“, koja se bavi podrškom u istraživanju raka.
