Rod Stewart recalls the circumstances that inspired the song: In July 1961, a few of my mates and I went off to the south of England to camp out at the Beaulieu Jazz Festival. In 1971, while working on his third solo album, Rod Stewart met guitarist Martin Quittenton, and they conceived of the song during an impromptu meeting at Stewart’s home in London, and later refined it after recording the melody and a few phrases during a demo session Morgan Sound Studios in London. Later, Stewart listened back to the demo tape after the session, and pieced together the rest of the lyrics from there. How did the single chart? Maggie May topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 5 weeks.
