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.
