Rod Stewart has endured another immense loss in his family just two months after the passing of his brother, Don.
In a heartbreaking Instagram post, the veteran singer revealed his other brother, Bob, died this week aged 88, meaning Rod has lost two siblings in as many months.
“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 77-year-old shared on Instagram. “I’ve lost two of my best mates in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob ‘irreplaceable buddies.'”

Rod, who also has two sisters named Peggy and Mary, did not disclose a cause of death in his post.
British journalist and Stewart’s good friend Piers Morgan was among the many to console the rock star on social media.
“How sad… deepest condolences to you all. RIP Bob,” Morgan wrote.
Stewart has undoubtedly been mourning since September when brother Don died, just two days after the death of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

“It has been a devastating 48 hours,” the singer wrote at the time on Instagram. “We lost my brother Don on Tuesday at 94 and today we have all lost Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at 96.”
“The Queen has been an unwavering presence throughout my life and a great unifier. A shining star that will never fade in our hearts and souls. What a privilege it was to perform for her. My deepest sympathies to the Royal Family. God save the King.”
