Rod Stewart cumple 71 años


La Muerte de David Bowie ha pasado por delante de la celebración del cumpleaños de Rod Stewat.
Roderick David Stewart, CBE (Londres, 10 de enero de 1945) es un músico, compositor y productor británico de música rock, conocido mundialmente por haber sido vocalista en las bandas The Jeff Beck Group y Faces, como también por su exitosa y extensa carrera como solista. Con su distinguida voz rasposa inició su carrera como músico callejero para luego participar en The Dimensions y en el supergrupo The Steampacket, durante los primeros años de la década de los sesenta. Sin embargo alcanzó el éxito luego de ingresar a The Jeff Beck Group, donde solo participó en sus dos primeros álbumes, y luego en Faces hasta 1975 cuando la agrupación inglesa se separó. Paralelo a su trabajo en Faces inició su carrera en solitario con el disco An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down, logrando más atención en las listas musicales que los mismos álbumes del grupo británico. Tras la separación de Faces se centró en su carrera a tiempo completo, que continuó logrando éxito y ventas millonarias durante los años posteriores e incluso hasta el día de hoy. A lo largo de sus más de cuarenta años de trayectoria como solista, ha incursionado en diversos géneros musicales como el soft rock, pop rock, new wave, soul, blues rock, folk, rhythm and blues, white soul y la música disco, entre otros.

Roderick David "Rod" Stewart, CBE (born 10 January 1945) is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry. Stewart is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold over 100 million records worldwide. He has had six consecutive number one albums in the UK, and his tally of 62 UK hit singles includes 31 that reached the top 10, six of which gained the number one position. He has had 16 top ten singles in the US, with four reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2007, he received a CBE at Buckingham Palace for services to music. With his distinctive raspy singing voice, Stewart came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with The Jeff Beck Group and then with Faces, though his music career had begun in 1962 when he took up busking with a harmonica. In October 1963 he joined the Dimensions as a harmonica player and part-time vocalist, then in 1964 he joined Long John Baldry and the All Stars. Later, in August 1964, he also signed a solo contract, releasing his first solo single, "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", in October of the same year. He maintained a solo career alongside a group career, releasing his debut solo album An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down (US: The Rod Stewart Album), in 1969. His early albums were a fusion of rock, folk music, soul music and R&B. His aggressive blues work with The Jeff Beck Group and the Faces influenced heavy metal genres.[5][6] From the late 1970s through the 1990s, Stewart's music often took on a new wave or soft rock/middle-of-the-road quality, and in the early 2000s he released a series of successful albums interpreting the Great American Songbook. In 2008, Billboard magazine ranked him the 17th most successful artist on the "Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists". A Grammy and Brit Award recipient, he was voted at No. 33 in Q Magazine's list of the top 100 Greatest Singers of all time,[and No. 59 on Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Singers of all time. As a solo artist, Stewart was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006 and was inducted a second time into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, as a member of the Faces.
