Date January 10, 2020 11:05

One and only Sir Rod Stewart is turning 75 today! For this special occasion, we want to take time to celebrate our beloved singer. Let the celebration begin!

Why we love Rod Stewart

There's no denying that Rod Stewart can boast one of the most successful music careers in the world. He joined a blues band when he was 18 and since then has following accomplishments under his belt:

  • Recorded a total of 30 albums as of 2019 (not to mention various compilation, video, and live albums, where does he find the time!);
  • Sold 200 million records (both albums and singles);
  • Received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 1993;
  • Was immortalized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994;
  • Managed to break a record by becoming the oldest male singer in the UK to have a number one album. Curious when it happened? Oh, just a little less than a month ago. That's right, he's still dominating the industry and shows no signs of stopping.

Of course there are many more accolades we can mention, but we don't think you have all day, or even a week, it's Rod Stewart we're talking about after all!

Happy Birthday, Legend!

On January 10, 1945 the legend of British rock music was born and we are so thankful to have his talent in this world on this particular day.

We also want to take a second to praise Stewart's personal life, which is almost as eventful as his career.

The famous singer is a big inspiration and a sign of hope for many people as he has battled two types of cancer: thyroid in 2000 and prostate in 2017. In 2019, he was given an all-clear on the latter.

Stewart also gives back, as he's a regular patron of The City of Hope Foundation, which helps people living with cancer, especially children.

Rod will be surrounded by love today

And, of course, we can't not forget his big and happy family. Did you know Rod has 8 children? Yes, he's a busy papa. Not to mention there are also couple of grandchildren at play.

Stewart has also been living in a blissful marriage with Penny Lancaster since 2007. We just love their union!

We know in hearts that the singer's family will make his big day feel extra special. From us, we wish Rod infinite happiness, strong health, and to never lose his creativity. What would we do without his music! Happy Birthday, Rod Stewart, we love you!
