Tonight was the night for Rod!

He went to Number One in the US singles charts with this hit on this day (13th Nov) in 1976.

'Tonight's The Night' was Rod Stewart's second hit across the pond.

It made it to Number Five here but it could have been higher.

But it was banned by a lot of radio stations for being about the seduction of a virgin!
