Had me a real good time.

 

Stay with me.

 

Pool-hall Richard.

 

And, Cindy incidentally.

 

Rod on his own?  Maggie May :sweeet:

An old boss of mine was their lighting man back in the day. Rod had a bar set up in the stage left wing to provide drinks during the show for him. Complete with barman in a white barman’s jacket.

Mandolin Wind is a favourite.

Great music - love the early stuff but seen him at Edinburgh Castle with the Celtic drums and Celtic strips at the front of stage - which he always plays up to - wouldn’t go to another 

fair play to him though he has had a dream life

Poor man's Steve Marriot.

 

Cracking programme on Sky Arts the other night documenting the lifespan of The Small Faces; sadly only Kenney Jones still with us. Steve Marriot was a great singer and songwriter, Rod Stewart is an absolute ^^^^.

Saw them at a gig in Edinburgh, early 70's at The Playhouse I think it was, they were great.

Got all the old Rod and the Faces songs and some are classics. Seen Rod Stewart countless times in concert and he's a great showman but wish he'd pack it in now, or a few years ago really, as he still tries to be the "do you think I'm sexy" guy and the answer is a big NO at his age

Unfortunately the guys a cock, hence his talksport cameos, all Ferrari and Celtic. Billy big baws Prick of a man. Not even Scottish.

 

Even worse, his old man was a Hibby. Source? Rod himself talking on Loose Women

Ronnie Lane's input to the Faces is never properly recognised. 

Debris is an outstanding tune. 

Ronnie Lane was a great bass player and wonderful song writer. On another note ,I read the Ian Mclagan book ( great read) and he talked about when RS decided to leave the Faces. He said he behaved like billy big baws and basically just walked out on the band.

An incredible artist. Everyone remembers Maggie May but when I got my first bass I had a go at the baseline.

Em...what ? Gave up until I could play much better.

Great great musician.

He used Ronnie Wood joining the Stones as an excuse but I think he would have left anyway. His solo career was outgrowing the Faces by then.

Ian McGlagan in his auto biography described Rod as “tighter than two coats of paint” 

 

Rod’s an arse.

Love The Faces. As others have said, Debris is a fantastic tune as is You Can Make Me Dance, Sing.
