A true sign of the popularity of any musician is the ability to appeal to fanbases around the globe. Rod Stewart was one of the most successful musicians of the 20th century, and continues to delight crowds around the globe with his music in the 21 st century. Stewart was born and raised in London, and launched his career in 1961 as a harmonica player. Today, Stewart is known as one of the greatest singers of all-time, with a distinctive singing voice that is best described as raspy.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Stewart rose to fame as a member of the Jeff Beck Group, and later with the group Faces. The music that Stewart was involved in during those early years has been described by fans and music industry critics as aggressive blues that helped influence the heavy metal genre that would come to prominence later in the 1970s and 1980s. Stewart's music was massively popular during his early days, and it was not uncommon for Rod Stewart tickets to sell out quickly once tour stops were announced.
As Stewart aged and his solo career took flight, his music changed. His music gradually took on a new wave sound, with many critics classifying his work as soft rock. Regardless of the genre you put his music in, there is no denying that Stewart was immensely popular. He is widely regarded as one of the most successful musicians ever with record sales that top 100 million copies worldwide. The success he has enjoyed is evident in brisk album sales and the popularity of Rod Stewart tickets.
Over the course of his brilliant career, Stewart has had six consecutive number one albums in the UK, 62 UK hit singles, 31 Top 10 singles, and six singles that reached the top position on UK charts. Stewart is one of the few musicians to enjoy equal success across the pond in the United States. He has 16 Top 10 singles in the US, with four reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
