Legends Of Rock Live: ROD STEWART: THE EARLY YEARS

 

ABOUT:

Hosted by music archivist Bill Shelley

Rod Stewart struggled in the beginning of his musical career in the UK, working in many groups, until finding his way to stardom, first with The Jeff Beck Group and then The Small Faces which became The Faces. His musical compositions and singing style caught the attention of his growing fan-base. His song “Stay With Me” leaped up the charts and made Stewart an international star. His narrative approach to lyrics made audiences feel that his songs were autobiographical and he was allowing them into his private thoughts and life. At the same time, there seemed to be magic created by Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, who together created the sound associated with The Faces. When the group disbanded, Ron Wood joined The Rolling Stones and Rod continued as a solo act.

Stewart’s style seemed to fit just about any performer he worked with, and his songwriting skills grew to great acclaim, writing such classics as “Mandolin Wind,” “Do You Think I’m Sexy?” and “Gasoline Alley,” all of which will be in this program. Having sold over 100 million records worldwide, Stewart is considered one of the best-selling recording artists.

This program will celebrate and highlight performances from these different stages of Stewart’s career. Some of the songs that will be featured will be “Maggie Mae,” “You Wear It Well,” “Stay With Me,” and “Hot Legs.” You will see clips of performances from TV, live concerts, some from around the world, and early promotional materials.
