The Independent 
London; May 23, 1996


Veteran rocker Rod Stewart is to go on a national tour with his old group The Faces, it was revealed yesterday.

The tour, provisionally planned for later this year, will feature the band's original line-up from the 70s, including Ron Wood and Ian McLagan. According to drummer Kenny Jones, the tour will raise money for Ronnie Lane, the fifth member of the band, who is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.

He said that the reunion resulted from a recent secret meeting in Dublin. "There's been a great demand for the Faces to actually reform and do something. . . .It's mainly to help Ronnie Lane and will be in the spirit of Ronnie," Jones, 47, said.

The band, perhaps best known for their hit single Stay With Me, split in the mid 70s after Stewart became a tax exile. The 50-year-old rocker, famous for his love of football and blondes, was nervous when they asked him to rejoin them. "We were in a pub and he said 'Oh do you think the others would let me? Do you think it'll be all right?" I said: 'Yeah, no problem," Jones said.
