Rod Stewart concert
Monday, October 29 2007, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
A Scottish singer born and raised in London. He describes himself as a "Scottish rock singer", owing to his parentage. He considers himself as a true Scot. He was a member of the The Jeff Beck Group and the Faces. He was also briefly in a band entitled Roddy Rod and the Dynamic Duo with fellow band members Mark McCallister and Sammy Pierce before embarking on a solo career. His wife is model Penny Lancaster.
With his career in its fifth decade, Stewart has achieved numerous hit singles worldwide, most notably in the UK, where his tally of 62 hit singles includes 24 that went Top 10, of which six went all the way to number one.
It has been estimated that Stewart's album and single sales total more than 250 million, easily earning him a place on the list of best-selling music artists, and he is probably most widely known for his instantly identifiable husky voice. His biggest-selling song was the 1978 disco hit "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?", which Stewart never took seriously.
