Paul Stewart, Team Manager of Stewart Grand Prix between 1997 and 1999, has recorded a song dedicated to triple World Champion father Jackie as part of his 70th birthday celebrations this year.
Written by brothers Paul and Mark with musical assistance from none other than legend and family friend Eric Clapton, 'Fly Free' was composed especially for Sir Jackie as the Scot celebrated his threescore and ten on June 11.
"I cannot think of a more wonderful gift to receive for my birthday," the Champion of 1969, 1971 and 1973 said. "I did not know that my son Paul could sing, write music, or lyrics, for such music. What a surprise and delight.
"Our younger son Mark created the pictures to go with the music so well, representing the wonderful and exciting life that I have enjoyed with my wife Helen and both of my sons and their families.
"To have Eric Clapton play on this CD and DVD is another enormous thrill and privilege for somebody who enjoys Eric's music as much as I do. Eric is a good friend and one of the great musicians of the world.
"I am so proud and honoured that they created all of this for me."
