This is funny in a way because of how it says Ronnie "who now plays guitar" in the Stones. Gee....since 1975.
Rod Stewart to reform The Faces, with Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood
ROD Stewart is the latest veteran rocker to hanker after his old band, with news that he is planning a tour with The Faces, including Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood.
The singer met with former Faces bandmate Ronnie Wood – who now plays guitar in the Rolling Stones – at a London restaurant last week to finalise plans for a reunion tour.
A source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “Ron and Rod had a great time reminiscing. They were having a laugh but there is still a serious hunger to get back in the studio. There are plans for the band to start recording in the autumn with a tour in the pipeline for this winter.”
The Faces were formed of members from two bands, the Small Faces and the Jeff Beck group, in 1969 and included Ian McLagan on keyboards, Kenney Jones on drums and Ronnie Lane – who passed away in 1997- on bass alongside Rod and Ronnie Wood.
The group split in 1975 and Rod went on to enjoy an incredibly successful solo career.
The full line-up reunited briefly to play at one of Rod’s Wembley Stadium concerts, in London, in 1986.
In 1993, the band - minus bassist Lane who was suffering from Multiple Sclerosis at the time – performed at the BRIT Awards when Rod was honoured with a lifetime achievement award.
The Faces are the latest in a long line of classic rockers to reform, following The Police, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Led Zeppelin.
