Rod Stewart mourned the death of his brother Bob this week, just two months after the death of his brother Don.

In a post shared on Instagram, Stewart confirmed his brother died on Tuesday night.

“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,” the singer wrote. “I’ve lost two of my best mates in the space of two months.”


The rockstar is the youngest of five, and has two surviving sisters, Peggy and Mary. His older siblings were raised in Scotland before moving to London, where Rod was born and raised.

Stewart has previously shared how close he’s been with his siblings. At his sister’s 90th birthday party, he said his siblings were “instrumental in supporting me, helping me get into music and just being there for me.”

He wrote in Wednesday’s post that his brothers were “irreplaceable buddies.”

In September, Don passed the same week as Queen Elizabeth II. Stewart posted his condolences for both his brother and the queen, saying it was a “devastating 48 hours.”
