Rod Stewart - Maggie May

Roderick David "Rod" Stewart, (born 10 January 1945) is a British singer-songwriter born and raised in London, England and currently residing in Epping. He is of Scottish and English lineage.
With his distinctive raspy singing voice, Stewart came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with The Jeff Beck Group and then Faces. He launched his solo career in 1969 with his debut album An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down. His latest release was "Once in a Blue Moon" a "lost album" originally recorded in 1992, featuring ten cover songs including the Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday", Dylan's "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar" and Stevie Nicks' "Stand Back", as well as Tom Waits' "Tom Traubert's Blues." Released the 14 Jan 2010.



At the moment Rod is out on tour and visit Sweden for two shows, Stockholm and Malmö. I was at the show in Stockholm. What i could tell about the show that is Rod is in a very good shape and he still has his voice and his charisma, Rod is still very fancy about blonde girls...hehe. See below for the rest of the tour.



So for today we have a classic tune "Maggie May". It is a song written by singer Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton and recorded by Stewart in 1971 for his album Every Picture Tells a Story. "Maggie May" expresses the ambivalence and contradictory emotions of a young man involved in a relationship with an older woman, and was written from Stewart's own experience. In a issue of Q magazine, Stewart recalled: "Maggie May was more or less a true story, about the first woman I had sex with, at the Beaulieu Jazz Festival." Todays video is with Faces back in 1971, Enjoy!
