With an estimated 250 million in album and single sales, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Rod Stewart arguably possesses one of rock’s greatest and most distinctive voices, and Spin Magazine has called him “the single greatest male singing voice of the rock era.”
Stewart’s career spans from the seminal EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY to his first #1 album BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN through OUT OF ORDER, DOWNTOWN TRAIN, the chart topping trio of AMERICAN SONGBOOK albums. His last rock album, 2006’s STILL THE SAME…GREAT ROCK CLASSICS OF OUR TIME, was a return to Stewart’s roots and reinforced Stewart’s peerless talent as a master vocalist.
In 2008, Warner Bros. Records launched a revamping of Stewart’s extensive catalog, with the release of THE DEFINITIVE ROD STEWART, a collection of 30 of his greatest hits, and March 2009 will see the release of a remastered Collector’s Edition of Stewart’s classic 1993 MTV Unplugged Performance UNPLUGGED…AND SEATED, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts and illuminated many of the songs that have come to define his superstar career.
Stewart’s trademark voice has successfully commanded nearly every genre of music including folk, rock, soul, R&B, blues and more, even managing to breathe a unique modernity into the classics.
Rod Stewart became a household name in 1971 with the release of Every Picture Tells a Story and the smash hit "Maggie May." The album and the single held the number one spot in both the U.S. and the U.K. simultaneously, a chart first. His discography includes numerous other hits such as “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy,” “Tonight’s the Night,” “You’re In My Heart” and “The First Cut is the Deepest.” Stewart is currently one of the top grossing musical artists in the world, according to both Forbes and Rolling Stone.
