"Wake up Maggie, I think I've got something to say to you..."

Who hasn’t heard that opening to the classic song Maggie May before? That song is just one of the many hits by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Rod Stewart. Possessing one of the most distinctive voices in music, Rod has been making music since the mid-60s. Recently, a CD collection titled The Definitive Rod Stewart was released. The set contains 30 of his greatest hits and it takes you from his early solo years all the way up to songs he made during the ’80s and ’90s. Personally, I prefer his older stuff compared to what he did in the later years. But no matter what style of his you like, it’s all here on this 2-disc set. On top of that, the deluxe edition also includes a bonus DVD of music videos. Love him or hate him, the guy has made his mark in the music industry. And this set contains all the essential tracks throughout his successful career.
