Rod Stewart has announced the death of his brother Bob, two months after the death of their eldest brother Don.
The 77-year-old musician shared the news on social media on Wednesday (November 30).
He used a photo edit of a candle and the words “rest in peace” to share the unfortunate news with his followers.
“It is with great sadness that I announce last night the loss of my brother Bob who is joining my brother Don in the big soccer field in heaven,” he began his caption.
“I lost two of my best friends in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob, “irreplaceable buddies”.
Fans and friends were quick to express their condolences and well wishes.
“I am terribly sorry for your loss my friend,” wrote Sharon Stone.
“How sad…deepest condolences to you all. RIP Bob,” added Piers Morgan, while music producer David Foster said, “My sincere condolences.”
In September, Stewart announced that his eldest brother, Don, died two days before Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
Featuring an image of the royal crown logo, the “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” The singer wrote: “It’s been a devastating 48 hours. We lost my brother Don on Tuesday aged 94 and today we all lost Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II aged 96.”
Recently, Stewart was a notable artist to distance himself from the World Cup in Qatar. He revealed he turned down at least $1 million (£845,000) to perform at the opening ceremony, which took place earlier this month.
“I was actually offered a lot of money, over $1 million, to play there 15 months ago,” Stewart, 77, said The Sunday Times. “I turned it down. It’s not right to walk And the Iranians should also supply weapons.”
