During the 1960s, Stewart was a part of several different bands. In 1966, he joined the blues-influenced Jeff Beck Group and experienced his first taste of success. The group toured the United Kingdom and the United States and released two hit albums. In 1969, he joined what became known as the Faces. Ron Wood was one of his bandmates and became a member of the Rolling Stones. Stewart also performed as a solo artist and scored his first big solo success with the album Every Picture Tells A Story, which featured the hit single “Maggie May” in 1971. That same year, the Faces had a hit with the song “Stay With Me.”

 

Career Highlights

Stewart moved to the United States in 1975. The next year, he reached the top of the U.S. charts with “Tonight’s the Night” from A Night on the Town. Stewart continued to have a slicker, more pop sound as the decade progressed. He also developed a reputation for his partying lifestyle and for dating numerous actresses and models. With 1978’s Blondes Have More Fun, he had another smash hit single with “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”

The 1980s proved to be more challenging for Stewart. While 1981’s Tonight I’m Yours went platinum, the albums that followed did not fare as well. He ended the decade on a positive note, however. His remake of the Tom Waits song “Downtown Train” in 1989 received a lot of radio play. A few years later, he released Unplugged and Seated (1993), which was recorded at MTV Unplugged concert and featured the hit “Have I Told You Lately.”

With his distinctive throaty, almost scratchy-sounding voice, Stewart decided to take on some of the classic songs and make them his own with It Had to be You: The Great American Songbook (2002). He recorded four volumes of the Great American Songbook series, and won his first Grammy Award (best traditional pop vocal album) for Stardust: The Great American Songbook, Volume III in 2004.

Later Years

At the age of 60, Stewart became a father for seventh time. His son, Alastair Wallace Stewart, was born on November 27, 2005. This was his first child with then fiancée Penny Lancaster. The couple married in 2007 and welcomed a second son, Aiden, in 2011. He also has a daughter, Kimberly, and a son, Sean, from his first wife Alana Stewart and a daughter named Ruby with former girlfriend Kelly Emberg. He also has two children from his marriage to model Rachel Hunter—Renee and Liam. Stewart publicly acknowledged his oldest daughter, Sarah Streeter, in 2013. Streeter was born when Stewart was only 18 years old, and he and the girl’s mother had decided to put their baby up for adoption. Stewart and Streeter first met in 2008.

In 2006, Stewart returned to rock music with Still The Same: Great Rock Classics of Our Time. The album reached the top of the pop charts in October of that year. Stewart put down the microphone and picked up a pen to write his 2012 memoir Rod: The Autobiography. The following year, he made an impressive return to songwriting with his album Time. Stewart co-wrote of many of the record’s songs as well as serving as a co-producer on the project.

Selama 1960-an, Stewart adalah bagian dari beberapa band berbeda. Pada tahun 1966, ia bergabung dengan Jeff Beck Group yang terpengaruh blues dan mengalami kesuksesan pertamanya. Kelompok ini melakukan tur ke Inggris dan Amerika Serikat dan merilis dua album hit. Pada tahun 1969, ia bergabung dengan apa yang dikenal sebagai Wajah.

Stewart juga tampil sebagai artis solo dan mencetak sukses solo pertamanya yang besar dengan album Every Picture Tells A Story, yang menampilkan single hit “Maggie May” pada tahun 1971. Pada tahun yang sama, Wajah-wajah mendapat hit dengan lagu “Stay With ME

Karir Gemilang

Stewart pindah ke Amerika Serikat pada tahun 1975. Tahun berikutnya, ia mencapai puncak tangga lagu AS dengan “Tonight’s the Night” dari A Night on the Town. Stewart terus memiliki suara slicker, lebih pop saat dekade berjalan. Dia juga mengembangkan reputasi untuk gaya hidup berpesta dan untuk mengencani banyak aktris dan model. Dengan Blondes Have Have More Fun tahun 1978, dia memiliki single hit besar dengan “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” Tahun 1980-an terbukti lebih menantang bagi Stewart. Sementara Malam tahun 1981, I’m Yours pergi ke platinum, album-album berikutnya tidak berjalan juga. Dia mengakhiri dekade dengan catatan positif. Remake-nya lagu Tom Waits “Downtown Train” pada tahun 1989 menerima banyak pemutaran radio. Beberapa tahun kemudian, ia merilis Unplugged and Seated (1993), yang direkam di konser MTV Unplugged dan menampilkan hit “Have I Told You Lately.” Dengan suara khasnya yang serak dan hampir menyeramkan, Stewart memutuskan untuk mengambil beberapa lagu klasik dan membuatnya sendiri dengan It Had be You: The Great American Songbook (2002). Dia merekam empat volume seri Buku Nyanyian Amerika, dan memenangkan Grammy Award pertamanya (album vokal pop tradisional terbaik) untuk Stardust: Buku Nyanyian Agung Amerika, Volume III pada 2004.

Streeter lahir ketika Stewart baru berusia 18 tahun, dan dia dan ibu gadis itu telah memutuskan untuk membesarkan bayi mereka untuk diadopsi. Stewart dan Streeter pertama kali bertemu pada tahun 2008. Pada tahun 2006, Stewart kembali ke musik rock dengan Still The Same: Great Rock Classics of Our Time. Album ini mencapai puncak tangga lagu pop pada bulan Oktober tahun itu. Stewart meletakkan mikrofon dan mengambil pena untuk menulis memoarnya 2012 Rod: The Autobiography.
