Rod Stewart heartbreak: Emotional star hit by tragedy AGAIN as beloved brother dies just weeks after older sibling - 'Irreplaceable'
The 77-year-old singer paid tribute on Instagram, sharing an image of a candle and the message 'Rest in peace'
Sir Rod Stewart has announced the death of his brother Bob, two months after the loss of his other brother, Don.
The 77-year-old singer paid tribute on Instagram, sharing an image of a candle and the message “Rest in peace”.
He wrote: “It’s with great sadness that I announce the loss of my brother Bob last night, who joins my brother Don on the great football pitch in the sky.
“I’ve lost two of my best mates in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob ‘irreplaceable buddies’.”
His post prompted a wave of messages from fans and friends who sent their condolences.
Sharon Stone wrote “I’m terribly sorry for your loss my friend” while Sam Bailey said “So sorry xx thinking of you all xx”
It comes after Sir Rod announced the death of Don in September, just 48 hours before that of the Queen.
He wrote: “It has been a devastating 48 hours. We lost my brother Don on Tuesday at 94 and today we have all lost Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at 96.”
Sir Rod, the youngest of five children, also has two sisters – Peggy and Mary.
The veteran rocker recently revealed he has been supporting a family of seven Ukrainian refugees by renting them a home and paying their bills.
Sir Rod broke his usual stance of not discussing his charitable work, saying he wanted to inspire others to help those from the war-torn country.
