Rod Stewart’s brothers died two months apart, singer says

Rod Stewart mourns another brother in two months

The British pop rocker shared on Instagram on Wednesday that his brother Bob passed away on Tuesday, just months after his brother Don passed away.

“It is with great sadness that I announce last night the loss of my brother Bob who is joining my brother Don on the big soccer field in heaven,” the 77-year-old wrote, sharing a picture of a candle flame and the words “rest in peace.”

“I lost two of my best friends in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob are ‘indispensable buddies,'” he added.

The “Maggie May” and “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” singer is the youngest of his late parents’ five children. He also has two surviving sisters, Peggy and Mary.

Don Stewart died in September aged 94, just two days before the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, the singer said at the time, adding that it had been “a devastating 48 hours” for him.

The musician, who was trying to build an early career in football, has spoken a lot about his siblings, saying they all helped raise him.

“‘I have to tell you, these guys have been a tremendous support, helping me get into music and just being there for me,'” Stewart said at Mary’s 90th birthday party in 2019, according to the Sun.

“Whether it’s football or washing my dirty underpants, I can’t praise these guys enough,” he added. “These guys have just seemed brilliant my whole life. We’ve had our arguments, haven’t we, Don? A fight or two now and then, but I love you, and I love you Mary.”

That same year, the Grammy Award-winner — a reformed bad-boy rocker who’s transformed himself into a romantic crooner — revealed his own three-year private battle with prostate cancer.

Record producer David Foster, actress Sharon Stone and commentator Piers Morgan were among the many who offered their condolences in the comments section of Stewart’s Instagram post on Wednesday.

“My sincere condolences SRS,” Foster wrote.

“I’m terribly sorry for your loss my friend 😢” Stone added.

“How sad…deepest condolences to you all. RIP Bob,” Morgan commented.
