Rod Stewart has paid tribute to Ian McLagan, who died yesterday [December 3].
In a statement sent to Uncut, Stewart said, "I'm absolutely devastated. Ian McLagan embodied the true spirit of the Faces. Last night I was at a charity do, Mick Hucknall was singing 'I'd Rather Go Blind', and Ron Wood texted to say Ian had passed. It was as if his spirit was in the room. I'll miss you, mate."
Stewart is the latest musician to mourn the passing of McLagan.
