Rod Stewart turns 70 years of life with great songs that defined an era. Here are 4 of his greatest songs.
Roderick David Stewart was born on January 10, 1945 in Highgate, London. His dream was to be a football player, encouraged by his father, and even got to play in the lower sections of Brentford. He was disappointed to not have any offers to turn professional.
Therefore, he left football to pursue music and specifically the guitar, with which toured Europe.
In 1965, the promoter decided to form Steampacket Baldry group that featured Rod Stewart and Julie Driscoll. In less than a year, Stewart was among a group of Jeff Beck, but recognition came when what remained of the Jeff Beck Group and the Small Faces formed one of the most important bands of the late '60s: The Faces.
With them he recorded five albums that achieved remarkable success. The group was composed by Rod Stewart (vocals), Ron Wood (guitar), Ian McLagan (keyboards), Kenny Jones (drums) and Ronnie Lane (bass).
The first solo album of Rod Stewart was "An old raincoat will never let you down," recorded in parallel with its participation in the group The Faces.
Thanks to the acceptance of the disc between the public and critics, Rod Stewart was encouraged to publish a second album, entitled "Gasoline alley". One of his first successes was "Maggie May", which reached number one in the UK and USA.
Due to the success of the single, Rod released a new album, which he entitled "Every picture tells a story", with which he returned to appear in the charts.
