Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
When MTV launched in 1981, they didn't have many videos available because most American artists didn't make them (Devo
is a notable exception). Stewart had already made several videos, and he gained significant exposure on the fledgling network.
Stewart had to retrain his voice after having a cancerous lump removed from his throat in 2000. He could not sing for 6 months, but made a full recovery.
He has a history of blond wives and girlfriends, including Britt Eckland, Alana Hamilton (ex-wife of George Hamilton), Kelly Emberg, Rachel Hunter and Penny Lancaster. He was married to Hamilton, Hunter and Lancaster.
Rod is an excellent soccer player and a famously big supporter of the Glasgow, Scotland football team, Celtic. He would kick a ball into the audience at many of his concerts. (thanks, Marilyn - New York, NY)
In 1994 he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. He skipped the ceremony because an earthquake hit his Los Angeles home 3 days earlier and he did not want to leave his family.
Rod Stewart once worked as a gravedigger at High Gate Cemetery, which is designated on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Garden of Special Historic Interest.
Rod issued his first single in 1964 under his own name - a version of Muddy Waters' "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl." He went on to join Steampacket (which contained Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and Brian Auger) in 1965, then the Jeff Beck Group. (thanks, jon - london, England)
He was in a group called Shotgun Express with Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood, who would go on to form Fleetwood Mac.
Stewart and Ron Wood were brought in to the Small Faces in 1969 to replace Steve Marriott, who had just left the band. The Small Faces dropped the "Small" and became the Faces. Ron Wood left to join the Rolling Stones in 1976; Rod Stewart concentrated on his already much more successful solo career. (thanks, Dierk - Hamburg, Germany)
His daughter Kimberly designs shoes.
He moved to Los Angeles in 1975 to avoid paying taxes in England.
He had his sixth child in 2005 at age 60. His fiancee, Penny Lancaster, was 34.
In a 2008 Esquire interview, Steven Van Zandt said: "I remember a kid running into band rehearsal one day, in '68 or so, and saying, You're not gonna believe this, but Rod Stewart is white! We said, Get outta here. We didn't believe him. There was just not that many places you could se pictures of people. There wasn't MTV and we never heard any white person sing like that. We knew he was black."
