Rod Stewart got his start singing R&B and blues songs with a bunch of forgettable British bands in the mid ‘60s before hooking up with ex-Yardbirds guitarist Jeff Beck in the axeman’s self-titled group. After a couple of albums with the Jeff Beck Group, Stewart joined the reconfigured Faces with pal Ronnie Wood. By the end of the decade he was a big enough draw to launch a solo career, which yielded him both a No. 1 album (‘Every Picture Tells a Story’) and single (‘Maggie May’) in 1971. He scored two more chart-topping hits by the end of the decade. In the ‘00s, Stewart recording songs from his youth on a series of albums dedicated to the Great American Songbook, which returned him to the top of the charts. In 2013, one of the world’s most distinctive voices returned with his first rock album in years.
