Stewart to be replaced by Mick Hucknall for reunion gigs
Faces guitarist Ronnie Wood says the reunited band “haven’t ruled out” getting original frontman Rod Stewart to play with them again.
The band are confirmed to play the Sussex Vintage At Goodwood festival (August 13-15), but have recruited Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall as a replacement for Stewart.
Speaking to Uncut’s sister publication [url= http://www.nme.com/news/u2/51360]NME[/url] about Hucknall, Wood said Stewart wasn’t on board because of schedule clashes. He also claimed they were on good terms and he may join them in the future.
“We haven’t ruled Rod out,” he said. “It’s just that his schedule is totally crossing over exactly when we wanted him. We’ve got Mick Hucknall because his voice is just like Rod‘s was in the ’70s.”
He added: “The door’s not closed to Rod, but we’re carrying on because it’s worth it.”
Wood said that the band may tour in January and hoped to play Glastonbury and other festivals in 2011.
