Stewart has been described by friend and collaborator, Bob Dylan, as a "fearless innovator."
Stewart and Lennox left The Tourists freeing them to experiment with electronics and other innovative musical techniques. Calling themselves Eurythmics - after a dance technique Eurythmy that Lennox had encountered at the Waldorf School - they decided to keep themselves as the only permanent members and songwriters, and involve others in the collaboration as they saw fit "on the basis of mutual compatibility and availability." They became Britain's biggest selling duo, selling 75 million records worldwide.
After strenuous years of touring and recording - they had released eight studio albums in eight years - a rift developed and Eurythmics disbanded.
Stewart began writing film soundtracks and had a big international hit in 1990 with the instrumental track "Lily Was Here" (featuring saxophonist Candy Dulfer). The single reached no.6 in the UK and the Top 20 throughout much of Europe, as well as in Australia and the US. He also formed a band called The Spiritual Cowboys, releasing two albums with this group in the early 1990s. Lennox took time off from her career to, among other things, have a baby.
