The Faces keyboard player Ian McLagan has confirmed the rest of the band, including Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, have been considering a reunion.
“We’re hoping to get together later this year to play and then we may have some news, but I want it to happen, badly,” he told BBC 6 Music.
McLagan said Stewart was the only member uncertain about reforming.
“Rod hasn’t wanted to do it for a long time. He didn’t see the need in it but I think he really wants to now. It’s going to be great if it does happen,” McLagan said.
But according to The Sun, Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood met at the Mayfair restaurant Cipriani to discuss the possibility of returning to the studio with the band.
A source commented: “Ron and Rod had a great time reminiscing. They were having a laugh and a joke but there is still a serious hunger to get back in the studio.
“There are plans for the band to start recording in the autumn with a tour in the pipeline for this winter.”
The original Faces lineup comprised Stewart, Wood, Ian McLagan, Kenney Jones and the late Ronnie Lane.
They formed in 1969 and released four studio albums between 1970 and 1973, which included the hits ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Ooh La La’.
