The musician confirmed Bob passed away on Tuesday (29.11.22) just weeks after the singer’s eldest sibling Don died and Rod shared his agony in a heartfelt statement in which he declared he has lost two of his “best mates in the space of two months.”
The 77-year-old musician 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’ Sir Rod Stewart.”
The music star – who also has two sisters named Peggy and Mary – did not give a cause of death in his statement.
Rod previously revealed his brother Don had died aged 94 in September two days before the death of Queen Elizabeth.
