“Rod is apparently keen, and I’m as keen as ever. My door’s always been open to that. It looks like next year will be the charm. I think this time he really means it. I’m smiling. I’m hoping. I hope that’s true. (Stewart) talks very positively, and I’m happy to hear it,” McLagan told WCSX. “It would be lovely to do. We’ve been talking about it long enough. Unless you start talking about it a year ahead of something, you’ve got to do something…The Faces never finished on a good note, so it would be nice to finish on a good note. That would be that,” drummer Kenney Jones added.
The Faces came together in 1969 from the ashes of Small Faces. Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Ian McLagan were joined by Kenney Jones and bassist Ronnie Lane in the group, who were inducted into the Rock Hall in 2012. Wood, McLagan and Jones were augmented by Rod Stewart bassist Conrad Korsch and Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall for their Rock Hall induction ceremony performance. In December Rolling Stone predicted that Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock would hold down the bottom end for a reunited Faces. Original Faces bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997.
