ROD STEWART - Born in London, was in many groups before joining Jeff Beck group in 1967-1969. Left Jeff Beck to reform the Small Faces to the Faces. He was signed as a solo artist on Mercury records and recorded with the Faces on Warner Brothers records. He had 13 solo albums and 5 albums with the Faces chart in the 70's. He had 5 platinum and 4 gold solo albums and 1 gold album with the Faces in the 70's.
The solo albums were "The Rod Stewart Album' 'Gasoline Alley' 'Every Picture Tells A Story' 'Never A Dull Moment' 'Sing It Again, Rod' 'Live-Coast To Coast Overture And Beginners' 'Smiler' 'Atlantic Crossing' 'The Best Of Rod Stewart' 'A Night On The Town' 'Foot Loose & Fancy Free' 'Blondes Have More Fun' and 'Rod Stewart's Greatest Hits'. The Faces albums were 'The First Step' 'Long Player' 'A Nod Is As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse' 'Ooh La La' and 'Snakes And Ladders-Faces Greatest Hits'
His solo singles were "An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down" "Handbags And Gladrags"/"Man Of Contant Sorrow" "Gasoline Alley" "Country Comfort" "It's All Over Now" "Cut Across Shorty" "Maggie May"/"Reason To Believe" "(I Know) I'm Losing You"/"Mandolin Wind" "In A Broken Dream" (with Python Lee Jackson) "You Wear It Well"/"True Blue" "Angel" "Twisting the Night Away" "Oh!

 His Faces singles were "Wicked Messenger" "Had Me A Real Good Time" "Maybe I'm Amazed" "Stay With Me" "Cindy, Incidentally" "Ooh La La"/"Borstal Boys" and "You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything". Rod Stewart's solo albums were more acoustic, country sounding with the sound of violins and the mandolin. Ron Wood, the great guitarist, was a huge factor in Rod's solo success. Wood, of course, was also in the Faces which was a hard rock bluesy band with a sloppy feeling. It was a great balance for Rod, because from 1970-1973 there were 2 new Rod Stewart albums a year. One by the Faces and one solo by Rod. When Rod's solo career took off in 1971 with "Maggie May", the Faces, who were touring constantly, began to be billed as "Rod Stewart & Faces" which I'm sure bothered the rest of the group. But you can't blame the promoters for doing this. Rod was now a huge star. He would continue on to more huge success through the 80's into the 90's. Ron Wood would join the Rolling Stones in 1975.
