One of my all time favorites from The Faces featuring Rod Stewart, more so for Stewart’s voice and incredible footballer’s hairdo and Ronnie Wood‘s guitar than the content of the lyrics. The Faces were formed in the summer of 1969 when Stewart and Wood replaced Small Faces’ vocalist Steve Marriott, joining existing members bassist Ronnie Lane, keyboarder Ian McLagan, and drummer Kenney Jones. According to McLagan, the group dropped “Small” from their name because Stewart and Wood, at 5’9 and 5’8, were taller than Marriott and the remaining members.
Lane, known in the group as Plonk and Three-Piece, left the group in 1973 to form Slim Chance, McLagan went on to be an incredibly successful session musician for acts such as Chuck Berry, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen, Jones was the immediate replacement for Keith Moon in the Who, and Wood went on to join the Rolling Stones. Rod Stewart? I think he did OK.
