Rod Stewart Background
Rod Stewart was born in North London
as the youngest of five children. Even though Stewart's favorite hobby as a child was building model railways, he soon discovered
his love for music. Some of his earliest influences include Little Richard and Al Johnson, both of whom had a major impact
on Stewart's desire to pursue music. Stewart left school by the time he was 15, as he was encouraged by his father and his
coaches to pursue football professionally. Stewart had been playing football for years, and when he didn't make it onto a
club football team, he decided to pursue his other passion: singing.
Stewart picked up many off jobs to support himself,
such as delivering newspapers or working at a funeral parlor. He also started busking on street corners in London to earn
some extra cash and to get some extra money, and this served as a type of crash-course in performing for the young Stewart.
In 1963, Stewart joined a rhythm and blues group called the Dimensions, in which he played the harmonica and background vocalist.
While this was his first official job as a musician, he still had to support himself by taking on odd jobs on the side. The
Dimensions added lead singer, Jimmy Powell, to their ranks and became Jimmy Powell and the Five Dimensions, and the band regularly
played at the famous Studio 51 in London. While he was there, Stewart got to see legends-in-the-making like Mick Jagger perform
live on stage. Eventually, Stewart started recording demos while still playing the harmonica in a group with Long John Baldry.
His solo career started to pick up momentum as he performed some shows through the UK, and he and Baldry helped form the group
Steampacket. The band's very first performing debut was opening for The Rolling Stones. Stewart left Steampacket in 1996,
and joined a similar band called Shotgun Express, which featured members like Mick Fleetwood and Peter Green, who would later
form the famous Fleetwood Mac.
After years of hopping from band to band, such as Steampacket and Faces, Rod Stewart
signed with Mercury Records as a solo artist in 1968. Almost immediately, Stewart experienced significant success and a taste
of the limelight, with his fame escalating throughout the 1970s. Since emerging onto the music scene as a solo artist, Rod
Stewart has won Grammy Awards and Brit Awards and has sold millions of albums around the world. Even though he had to journey
on a long road to reach fame, once he did so he became one of the biggest stars in the world. So grab your tickets today to
one of Stewart's upcoming shows and get ready for the experience of a lifetime!
As a solo
artist, Rod Stewart has released a total of 29 studio albums and a whopping 109 singles. Few artists have had as illustrious
of careers as Rod Stewart has, which is evident in his record sales and incredibly devoted fan base all over the world. Some
of his most popular singles include "Maggie May", "Sailing", "The First Cut Is the Deepest", "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?", "Baby
