Rod Stewart says 2015 is being “ear-marked” for a reunion of the surviving members of the Faces. As reported by London’s The Guardian, the veteran singer prefaced the news—delivered in an interview with Boston’s WZLX radio station—with the revelation that prospects for a collaborative album with Jeff Beck had been aborted.
Stewart then dropped the good news regarding the Faces. “I think we have got much more of a chance of getting the Faces back together, in fact,” he said. “Ronnie [Wood]'s office is talking to my people, and we're ear-marking 2015.” The Faces have performed in recent years with Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall handling lead vocals. Stewart last sang with the band at the 1993 Brit Awards. Original Faces bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997.
