2002-ROD STEWART

The London born Rod Stewart has a career which extends back to 1964 when he cut his first record, “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.” Soon after he began turning up in such mid-Sixties R&B bands as Long John Baldry’s Hootchie Cootchie Men and Steampacket. Stewart really came into his own as the singer with the Jeff Beck Group, the guitarist’s post-Yardbirds ensemble, formed in 1968. From there, Stewart graduated to the Small Faces.

At the same time, Stewart launched a parallel career as a solo artist, developing a distinctive voice and persona over the course of a brilliant string of albums that included Gasoline Alley and Every Picture Tells A Story.

Stewart’s solo career effectively went into orbit with the 1971 release of “Maggie May”, an enduring rock classic. However, it was with “Tonight’s The Night”, the seductive ballad which shot to Number # 1 for eight weeks in 1976, that Stewart cemented an indelible bond with music fans. He has charted hit singles and platinum albums in nearly every year since that time.

He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, and his platinum albums include, “Gasoline Alley” (1970) “Blondes Have More Fun” (1978) “Camouflage” (1985) “Storyteller:The Complete Anthology” (1990) and “Vagabond Heart” (1991).
