Despite their 16-year age gap, Rod and Mary have always been close, and earlier this year, the singer even invited his sister on stage for a duet. As he wrapped up his UK tour in Edinburgh, the father-of-eight was joined by Mary for a performance of his 1975 hit, Sailing. 

"This is my sister! 94!" he announced to cheering crowds in July. Throughout the duet, Rod and Mary stood with their arms wrapped around one another. 

Speaking to The Mirror about Mary's impressive performance, Rod gushed: "At 94, she's on a rock'n'roll stage and loving it. She has and continues to teach me about life."

One of five children, Rod's second sister, Penny, sadly died in 1975 at the age of 40. According to Mary, Peggy had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 23.
