A Face-Saving Effort From Rod Stewart

1 29

Rod Stewart and the  Rolling Stones’ Ron Wood are said to have met recently met for lunch to discuss the possibility of reviving their old group, The Faces. Stewart and Wood both played with The Faces back imagein the late 1960’s and 1970’s.

Now it seems the old band mates may have an interest in reviving the group and there are reported to be plans for  the group to begin working in the studio in the fall with a tour possible in the winter.

Along with Stewart and Wood, other members of the group were Ian McLagan, Kenney Jones and the late Ronnie Lane, who died in 1997. Even after a very successful solo career, it seems Stewart still has a desire to reunite with some of his old mates.

The group reunited during 1993, without Ronnie Lane who was suffering from M.S. at the time. The occasion was the BRIT Awards, where Rod Stewart was honored with a lifetime achievement award.

There was no word on whether or not Ron Wood gave the thumbs up to the reunion offer, but after decades with the Rolling Stones, it’s unlikely he’d decide to do it based on the potential financial rewards.

    At the risk of sounding sarcastic – are there any old bands from back then that AREN’T planning a reunion (not counting the ones that never broke up in the first place and are still touring around)???

    I liked Rod’s really early stuff (Every Picture, Never a Dull Moment..) but then he kinda lost his appeal for me.

    When I think of the Faces I think of Ronnie Lane…oh well.
