The British rock and pop singer and songwriter is known for his distinctive raspy singing voice, and is among one of the the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 120 million records worldwide.

His music career began in 1962 when he took up busking with a harmonica and hasn't stopped since, releasing some of the most popular hits in British music.

Alongside his career, Stewart is known for his eccentric hairstyles and fashion choices - something he recently showed off on his Instagram account.

Posting a throwback image during the early days, Stewart can be seen wearing a striped collared top paired with a striped blazer and white trousers - accompanied by a white belt and his iconic mullet hairstyle.

He captioned the black and white image: "Vogue said I was a style Icon… Do you agree? Photo by Micael Ochs in 1973."

Fans were quick to flock to the comment section, and left one beloved fan to agree: "Oh yes! And you still are, Sir Rod Stewart!"

"Always have been, always will be. Sir Rod those cheekbones could cut diamonds," another added before a third penned: "You have been bravely evolving throughout the years! You create great looks on and off the stage!"

Someone else praised: "Well, you definitely had a style, and has been an icon for generations."

"Indeed Rod, you were stylish then, and still stylish now!" a fifth said before another wrote: "Always A Style icon. Through the decades. Look Amazing Sir Rod Stewart. Forever Young." (sic)

The Hot Legs singer recently opened up about "slowing down" on his music career, with his wife Penny Lancaster admitting she has gotten used to his "workaholic" lifestyle during their 17-year marriage.

"I don't see any possibility of slowing down anytime soon. And as I get older, I only really want to do things that give me great pleasure."

Lancaster added to OK! magazine: "He loves what he does so much and will never retire. He's a workaholic and constantly on the move. I struggle to keep up with his training schedule. He works out three or four times a week, even on tour."

"We like to take every opportunity to bring the family, children, and grandchildren together. Part of the family lives in America, part in England, so it requires a lot of planning, but at least two or three times a year, the whole clan comes together."

She continued: "There are the usual family ups and downs. You have to use a lot of diplomacy, and be patient and understanding. In the end, it's worth it because you experience this wonderful bond that only a family can have."

However, after finally getting the right diagnosis, the former model shared an update on her marriage to Stewart and posted a sweet image of the couple, with the caption reading: "Romance never dies." (sic)
