Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart (born January 10, 1945) is an English singer.

Born in London, he was a moderately talented but largely unknown British folk rock singer during the 1960s. In 1967, he joined the original Jeff Beck Group with guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck on lead as well as bassist Ron Wood and drummer Aynsley Dunsbar[?].

In 1971, Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group after already having done some work with The Faces. Stewart's 1971 solo album Every Picture Tells a Story made him a household name, and when the B-side "Maggie May" started receiving radio play, it hit #1 in both the U.S. and the UK. The Faces (with Stewart) also got their only U.S. top ten hit with "Stay With Me".

In the late 1970s, Stewart began to enter more pop-oriented music and got another #1 hit with 1978's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" After a slump during the early 1980s, Stewart started spending less time recording music and playing the role of famous rock star[?]. In 1993, he recorded the hit song "All For Love" with Sting and Bryan Adams for the soundtrack to the movie The Three Musketeers[?].
