->''"Rod Stewart was once interviewed saying how he felt it was so wonderful to be married to his newest wife, that he'd "rather have his dick cut off" than cheat on her. That's a direct quote, by the way. Some time later, Rod "Spread your wings and let me come inside" Stewart is sued for divorce from his wife on the grounds of adultery."''

English singer-songwriter Rod Stewart is probably most famous - or infamous - for his sexually-charged songs, such as "Tonight's the Night", which discusses seduction of a virgin (including an almost explicit description of him demanding she let him get inside her); "Maggie May", about a man who is tired of shacking up with his lover; and "Young Turks", about a boy and girl who decide to run off together when their parents won't let them be together any more (probably because he got her pregnant).

He might also be famous for his numerous girlfriends and wives (and sometimes both together), such as Creator/BrittEkland, Jerri Hall, Alana Stewart, and others. He has one daughter from one of his wives.

He tried to be a footballer (soccer player for you Americans) and typically tosses a soccer ball out into the audience for them to bounce around. He's also known for having very rowdy hair, and he's a model train enthusiast.

Prior his solo success, Stewart fronted the Jeff Beck Group and Music/{{Faces}}.
