New York, NY: September 24, 2015 – 92Y announces a rare opportunity to join two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and global superstar Rod Stewart for an intimate interview on Thursday, October 29. He talks about the early days—from his humble childhood to busker, bohemian and Mod in London’s ’60-70s club scene—to fronting The Jeff Beck Group and his five raucous years with the Faces, to writing “Maggie May,” and setting in motion one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. Stewart also discusses his other great passions (Celtic FC), family and his not-so-private private life, and his renaissance as a songwriter and performer of original hit songs, as his second album of the decade, Another Country, is released October 23 on Capitol Records.
