Rod Stewart won’t rejoin The Faces until Ronnie Wood quits the Rolling Stones

June 17, 2011

Visit our main website at:

Rod Stewart says he has ruled out rejoining his old band The Faces until guitarist Ronnie Wood leaves the Rolling Stones. He is concerned that Wood’s heart is not in a Faces reunion because he is still committed to his work with the Stones.

   “The trouble with Ronnie is, we get together and we mess about, but he is still committed to the Stones,” Stewart told US magazine Billboard. “Talking for myself and the rest of the band, we need a commitment – not just, ‘Well, I’ve got next month off’. It doesn’t work like that. It’s not very professional.”

   He added: “If he can give us the time, then I’ll commit to that as well. Until he’s finished with the Stones, whenever that will be, I can’t commit to it.”

The Faces to reform?

July 11, 2008

The Faces keyboard player Ian McLagan has confirmed that he and the surviving members of the band – Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones – are considering a reunion.


There has been speculation about The Faces reuniting for a one-off concert for the past couple of years. This time, though, it looks like it might happen – perhaps by the end of the year.


McLagan said the band members had all agreed to reform and it is just a case of trying to find a time that is convenient for everyone.


“Rod hasn’t wanted to do it for a long time; he didn’t see the need,” McLagan told BBC 6Music. “But I think he really wants to now. It’s going to be great if it does happen.”


Meanwhile, The Sun has reported that Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood recently met at a restaurant in London’s Mayfair to discuss the possibility of returning to the recording studio with the band. According to some reports, they may start recording an album this autumn, followed by a winter tour.


Stewart has always maintained that The Faces would not be The Faces without bass player and singer Ronnie Lane who died in 1997, aged 51, two decades after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.


But two years ago, Stewart hinted that he would consider reuniting The Faces “for the right reasons” – such as a big one-off charity event.


The Faces were formed in 1969 after frontman Steve Marriott left The Small Faces to form Humble Pie. The remaining members – Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones – poached Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood from the Jeff Beck Group and they became The Faces.


The Faces released four studio albums which included hits such as ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Ooh La La’. They toured regularly from 1970 to 1975, although a disillusioned Ronnie Lane left the band in 1973, and Stewart simultaneously pursued a solo career. During the band’s final year, Wood also toured with The Rolling Stones, whom he later joined.
