By the time he was 22, Al Stewart had met the Beatles and played John Lennon’s guitar, opened for The Rolling Stones, shared an apartment with Simon & Garfunkel, recorded for Jimmy Page, and spent a year playing guitar for Yoko Ono. Stewart came to stardom as part of the folk revival of the late ‘60s and ‘70s, and developed his own distinctive style of combining folk-rock music with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events of history. He is best known for his #1 hit “Year of the Cat” from the platinum album of the same name, and his follow up album “Time Passages, which also went platinum.
