Roderick David Stewart, born on January 10, 1945 in London, England, took on a series of odd jobs, including as a grave digger, long before he established a career in singing and simply used Rod Stewart as his stage name. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, he performed alongside bands The Jeff Beck Group and Faces. Rising to prominence with the bands, he took time to also embark on a solo career and signed his first recording contract in 1964. His first two albums "An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down" and "Gasoline Alley" were released in 1969 and 1970 subsequently.

His third set, "Every Picture Tells a Story" (1971) was a critical success and spawned hit single "Maggie May". Stewart relocated to US in 1975 and experienced success in his first years ahead. He conquered the charts with "Tonight's the Night" from "A Night on the Town", his seventh studio album which was released in 1976. He released an album almost every year since then; "Foot Loose & Fancy Free" (1977), "Blondes Have More Fun" (1978), "Foolish Behaviour" (1980), "Tonight I'm Yours" (1981), "Body Wishes" (1983), "Camouflage" (1984), and an eponymous in 1986. In 1990, his cover version of Tom Waits' song "Downtown Train" went to number three on the Billboard Hot 100. Three years later, he unveiled "Unplugged and Seated" (1993), which featured the hit "Have I Told You Lately."
