Faces reunion can’t be about money, says Wood

Ron Wood says the highly-anticipated Faces reunion is being held up by Rod Stewart’s management and their financial concerns.

And the Rolling Stones man insists he doesn’t want a gathering of the surviving members to be about money.

Wood said at a Q&A to promote his book How Can It Be? A Rock And Roll Diary: “I think that would be brilliant.”

But he added: “They make everything about money, and we’re trying not to do that. Why can’t the three surviving guys just get together and play for people?”

Drummer Kenney Jones said in March that a reunion had become more important since the death of keyboardist Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan. He insisted: “Rod, Woody and me are going to do the Faces this year.”

The three co-founders played a private set in Las Vegas in January to mark Stewart’s 70th birthday.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
