We're having a good little run on rock 'n' roll birthdays already this week.

On Sunday, David Bowie turned 65 (sorry we missed you, Ziggy Stardust, we were watching football). On Monday we marked the 68th birthday of Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. So let's not let the music stop just yet because today Rod Stewart is 67 years old.
The raspy-voiced British singer behind such hits as "Tonight's the Night (Gonna be Alright)," "Maggie May" and "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" is one of the best selling artists of all time. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in 1994 and will go in again in April as a member of Faces. Showing no signs of slowing down, the rocker became a father for the eighth time last February and a grandfather for the first time in August.
If you've ever been to a bar or driven in a car with the top down or danced in your bedroom with headphones on (I'm out of music cliches related to my youth) you might have some appreciation for Stewart and his music. The songs just sound like summer (sorry, that's the last cliche).
So sing along karaoke style and let us know in the comments below if you're a fan. Happy birthday, Rod.
