When I think of Rod Stewart it always conjures up happy memories from my childhood. Two of my older sisters were big fans and his music was a regular part of the musical background growing up. It was always clear to me that Rod loved what he was doing. You couldn’t help but get in a good mood yourself when listening. I’ve been fortunate to see him perform many times live. You always end up dancing, singing and having a good time.
While I probably enjoy serious and deep songs more than the average person, I also appreciate that music doesn’t always have to be so heavy. Sometimes it can just be about fun and having a good time. Rod has kept a stellar career going for almost 50 years by helping people forget about their cares for awhile and feeling good. He may not have been blessed with the best voice, but it is certainly unique. He uses every last bit of his talent. He also surrounds himself with exceptional musicians and has written some great songs through the years.
