Rod Stewart AKA ‘Rod The Mod’ has had a phenomenally successful career, both as a solo artist and as a member of group, Faces.
Stewart has had a total of 62 UK hit singles, six of which reached number one in the charts.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, acknowledged as a solo artist.
“Rarely has a singer had as full and unique a talent as Rod Stewart — a writer who offered profound lyricism and fabulous self-deprecating humor, teller of tall tales and honest heartbreaker, he had an unmatched eye for the tiny details around which lives turn, shatter, and reform — and a voice to make those details indelible. His solo albums were defined by two special qualities: warmth, which was redemptive, and modesty, which was liberating. If ever any rocker chose the role of every man and lived up to it, it was Rod Stewart.” –The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll (1980)
