Rod Stewart: 'Ronnie Wood and I talk about a Faces reunion'

Rod Stewart says he is keen to reform The Faces with Ronnie Wood, and suggests a reunion could happen if and when The Rolling Stones decide to retire.

The band previously reformed in 2009 for a one-off charity show with guest vocalists replacing the absent Rod Stewart, and also subsequent tours with Mick Hucknall on vocals. Stewart also missed the Faces and Small Faces induction into the Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012.

Speaking to The Express, Stewart said that he is interested in getting the band back together, if they are not too old when a window of opportunity presents itself.

"Mick’s a fine blues singer – but technically not as good as me. He’s made the best of what he’s got. But I don’t think he could do standards – he may not want to."
