For the first time, in a hand-bound Limited Edition from Genesis Publications, Ronnie, Mac and Kenney tell their own story: FACES1969-75 is The Official Signed Limited Edition by Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones.
Everything you think of a rock star doing and we did it to the fullest and beyond... - KENNEY JONES
FACES 1969-75 brings together the band's original commentary alongside over 200 photographs and items of memorabilia sourced from renowned rock 'n' roll photographers from all over the world, as well as the band's own personal archives. The images are a stunning mixture of the iconic and never-before-seen capturing the chaotic intensity of the Faces' career: the incendiary live shows, the on-stage laughs and off-stage high-lives, the private jets, groupies, drink, drugs, clothes, haircuts and Holiday Inns.
We wrote ‘Stay With Me’ backstage, before we went on. Rod said, ‘Come up with a really great lick and I’ll come up with the words,’ and we just had it going. Boom. - RONNIE WOOD
FACES 1969-75 is a limited edition of 1975 copies worldwide. Every numbered copy is signed by Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones.

We played hard and fast. It was a hell of a four-piece, and there were no rules. We were driving each other and the arrangements got more and more complex. We were better than any other band!- IAN MCLAGAN
