Roderick David Stewart was born on January 10, 1945 in Highgate, North London, England to Robert Joseph Stewart and Elsie Rebecca Gilbart. Growing up, Stewart excelled at soccer and had ambitions to become a professional soccer player, but decided to pursue music instead. Before finding success in music, Stewart worked a series of odd jobs, including a short stint working at a funeral parlor.

His distinctive voice set him apart from other artists and after working with several different bands, he found success as a solo artist. Today, Stewart is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Some of his biggest hits include “Maggie May,” “Tonight’s the Night,” and “Forever Young.”
