Rod Stewart Talks Faces Reunion and Manchester Orchestra Covers Ooh La La


Legendary rocker Rod Stewart may be best known to mainstream America for his string of adult contemporary hits in the '90s, but he'll always be best known to us as the lead singer of Hall of Fame rockers The Faces. Over the past handful of years there's been many stories about a potential Faces reunion, so take this with a grain of salt, but Stewart told a British paper that an opportunity for Faces to reunite may come if and when The Rolling Stones call it a day.

In an interview with Express Hot Rod said, "I’d like to return with The Faces. (Former Faces and current Stones guitarist) Ronnie (Wood) and I talk about it, and when the Stones finish – Mick is several years older than me – we’ll have a window of opportunity, if we’re not on Zimmers."

The Faces reunited without Stewart for a handful of shows and festival appearances between 2009 and 2011 and performed at their 2012 Rock Hall induction without Rod. Who knows how long The Rolling Stones will continue, despite the original members' advanced ages, but we're hopeful Rod and Ronnie get it together before it's too late.
