"Alastair Ian "Al" Stewart" is a Scottish singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician who rose to prominence as part of the British folk revival in the 1960s in music/1960s and 1970s in music/1970s. He developed a unique style of combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of characters and events from history.
Stewart is best known for his 1976 hit single "Year of the Cat (song)/Year of the Cat", the title song from the platinum album of the same name. Though Year of the Cat and its 1978 platinum follow-up Time Passages brought Stewart his biggest worldwide commercial successes, earlier albums such as Past, Present and Future (Al Stewart album)/Past, Present and Future from 1973 are often seen as better examples of his intimate brand of historical folk-rock – a style to which he has returned in recent albums.cite newsIf you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous musicians!
