Rod Stewart oldest male to top UK album chart

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Sir Rod Stewart has become the oldest male solo artist to have a number one album in the UK.

The British singer's 10th chart topper You're In My Heart was released on 22 November.

But it rose to the top spot this week in a close race - with a difference of just 750 in sales between Sir Rod, Robbie Williams and The Who.

Sir Rod, who is 74 years and 11 months old, has taken the accolade from American singer Paul Simon.

He beat Simon by three months, the Official Charts Company said.

But Sir Rod has a way to go to beat the oldest female to top the album charts. Dame Vera Lynn scored a number one in 2014 when she was 97 with the collection Vera Lynn: National Treasure.

Congrats to Rod! :clap:

As my sister informed me today, he was playing at the National Indoor Arena last night, just 2 miles away from here.  If I had known, I may have granted him an audience with me after the gig. ^_^

An entertaining character is Sir Roderick.  I love his late 60's / early 70's stuff.
