In a career spanning more than five decades, Stewart has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide with countless chart-topping hits and industry accolades, including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In May, Stewart released his "Time," his first rock album in a dozen years, which entered the U.K. Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist. In the U.S., it marked Stewart’s highest-charting album of original material since 1979. On Sept. 3, Stewart released "Rarities," a 24-track collection that includes previously unreleased music including his BBC Radio One Live performances of “Maggie May” and “Country Comfort” with Faces as well as alternative versions, B-sides and unexpected covers. In 2012, he also became a New York Times Best-selling author with the release of his autobiography.
Boz Scaggs' explorations in blues, R&B, rock and jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following and an enduring respect amongst musicians. Scaggs recently released “Memphis,” his first studio album in five years.
