The three surviving members of the Faces – Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones, and Rod Stewart – reunited onstage the Rock ‘n’ Horsepower charity concert in Surrey on Saturday.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years since the English rock band’s debaucherous heyday when they hired a bartender to serve them onstage during shows.
On the website, Jones said the bass player Ronnie Lane – who died in 1997 – and keyboard player Ian McLagan – who died last December – ‘will be dearly missed but we’ll raise a glass to them.’
The band’s drummer – who turns 67 this month – hosted the festivities at his very own Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, and each £50-£1000 ticket benefited Prostate Cancer UK.
Kenney – who later joined The Who – also happens to be a prostate cancer survivor, and he famously overcome it with ‘magic beads’ aka 4D brachytherapy.
70-year-old singer Rod – whose solo career amassed him a $220M fortune – is a thyroid cancer survivor and he was excited to ‘jam.’
‘Being in the Faces back in the day was a whirlwind of madness but my God, it was beyond brilliant,’ the Grammy winner and father-of-eight marveled.
Stewart – who’s sold over 100M records worldwide – will drop his 29th studio album Another Country on October 23.
And 68-year-old Ronnie – who later joined The Rolling Stones – had himself a ‘real good time’ getting back onstage with ‘the lads.’
‘Playing Stay with Me and other favourites will be a blast and will make this a very special night,’ the spiky-haired guitarist said.
‘Being in the Faces was a mad and brilliant time for all of us and although we don’t have Ronnie and Mac with us anymore this is our chance to remember them.’
The Faces – which formed in 1969 – released their final album Ooh La La in 1973, and they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2012.
