Maybe put Jeff Beck on the bill and do a set of Faces and Jeff Beck group. Might attract a few more ticket sales.

I would doubt that happening. Jeff Beck is still at the top of his game and can tour successfully as a solo act.

Btw.
Kenny would have been a better match to the Stones sound than Steve.
But nobody's asking me. . lol

...thankfully!


Ha, I knew that answer would come.
But why?

I find a new drummer/ Steve musically quite interesting.
But both Daryl and Steve not the best choice for the Stones. (If this has to be done).

Technically lots of musicians could do the job. But I could think of a few that imo fit better. I just mentioned Kenny cause we were talking Faces.
Iorr showed he could do the Charlie style. But with a nice (and better?) touch.
.

Maybe they wanted more Winos than Faces in the band.

You know I wonder who the deciding vote was for Daryl...Charlie's love of jazz, one would suspect maybe his vote carried a little extra weight.



I think MJ and KR"s ears are the only ears that matter. They trust their music to Darryl and Steve. MJ has to sing and dance to the rythm the they make only with MJ and KR approval. MJ is not going to let them fugg up the grove he performa to.

I would prefer to see the Faces with Mick Hucknall these days, he can still hit the higher notes.

That would leave only Ronnie and Kenney from the original group. Can that really still legitimately be called the Faces? And btw, if this video proves anything at all, it's that Ian McLagan was such an indispensable part of the band's overall sound, it makes me wonder if seeing them perform without him would even be worth the bother, regardless of who the singer is.

anymore news for this supposed faces tour because a thought crossed my mind that it be pretty cool if they did this before next summer ronnie asks keith to join them
kind of a win win keith's name would draw more people and would be a good way to keep keith's guitar chops in shape before the summer tour of europe next year

Rod is already booking solo gigs into October 2022, and there aren't many gaps in his schedule. Looks like he may have some free time during the winter months and again in June.

june seems unlikely unless the stones tour ends before then so seems like the winter sometime be our best bet got to imagine after his last round with cancer ronnie wouldn't want this to be put off to long just in case the worst happens and his cancer comes back

No offence, and don't get me wrong cause i love Rod, but he's full of c#*p.
He says he's getting the faces back again from time to time, I'll believe it when i see it.

To be honest if Rod wasn't available or changes his mind again, Mick Hucknall is just as good in my opinion. thumbs up

I've only just seen this clip from a few years back, when myself and paulywaul were in the front row of the audience, in the part of the studio that was like being in your living room at home.

It was on a Friday early evening recording for The Rob Brydon show on a very hot day.

Was at the old Thames Television studios at Teddington, now sadly long gone.

If I remember rightly, paulywaul was going to the Polo Club in Surrey somewhere on the following day, where The Faces performed a really great gig.

good point he does seem to say that a lot but i can hope
to be honest i'd rather ronnie get a band together and do a solo tour

I really liked the 2011 version of The Faces. Screw Rod, he can't sing rock anymore and he'd probably have a string section behind him. Also losing Mac is a big one, he was a massive part of their sound

Whats the point of it now? Apart from money.
Unfortunately much too late.

Ronnie was best in Faces but live he was always Ronnie.

I remember them on a festival in Germany ca.72/73 (with C. Berry,Sly & family stone,etc.). Keith Moon came on stage with them but didn't really play.
I loved the gig but couldn't believe some of the bum notes Wood played. But it was fun and it seemed he didn't give a shit.

Big Faces fan but like The Kinks, I think they've left it a little too late. They werent quite the same without Ronnie Lane but Macs absence leaves a huge sonic hole. And Rods voice aint what it used to be, to say the least .
I predict the reunion will somehow end up being an interlude or encore in Rod's shows. How about a proper live release- 1973's Overtures and Beginners was not all that hot and I recall Mac saying there were better live recordings in the can.

The incarnation with Mick Hucknall as singer was a good band (saw them live a couple of times). But they still had Ian McLagan. Without him, and with Rod Stewart's voice the way it is now, I don't think it would work.

Exactly this and as others have said, it's just too late now without Mac and Plonk, Rod's voice the way it is, just too much against them sounding good again.

See the Kenney Jones clip from MOJO in the Stones Connections thread: he's being very non-commital about the new recordings...

Listened to Rod the other day - clips from his new tour. Sounds very old and tired. Hot Legs is a joke. Mick - Rod 10-0! Sad, because I like him a lot. smiling smiley
