After young Roderick David Stewart left school at the age of 15, he worked briefly as a newspaper delivery boy, silk screen printer, and general laborer at a cemetery. He also had an unsuccessful tryout with a soccer club in his native London. Had any of those jobs stuck, we might never have heard the iconic voice of Rod Stewart.

Beginning in 1961, Rod Stewart performed as a harmonica player and eventually singer with such bands as The Dimensions, Steampacket, The Jeff Beck Group, and Faces. By the early-1970s, Stewart’s solo career had taken on a life of its own.

The hits kept on coming for Rod Stewart in the ’80s, ’90s, and well into the 2000s. He picked up just about every award and honor along the way. Rod even had success with a number of American standards and Christmas songs. The man can sing anything and make it sound good. Let’s look back at three of his earlier singles.

  • Tonight's The Night (Gonna Be Alright) (1976)

    “Tonight’s the Night (Gonna Be Alright)” was Rod Stewart’s second #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. The 1976 single features a part spoken in French by actress and model Britt Ekland, who was Rod’s girlfriend at the time. She’s also the woman seen only from behind in the video.

  • Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? (1978)

    Like so many artists in the late-1970s, Rod Stewart dipped a toe into Disco. Released in 1978, “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” was another massive international chart-topper for Rod. Once again, we see him wooing a woman in this video.

  • Some Guys Have All The Luck (1984)

    It looks like Rod Stewart finally struck out in the video for his 1984 cover of The Persuaders’ “Some Guys Have All the Luck.” Rod is all alone in this one. In truth, Stewart has rarely been without a beautiful woman on his arm. He dated and married multiple models over the course of his life.
