Faces

The Faces were formed from the ashes of The Small Faces after Steve Marriott[?] left to form Humble Pie; new members Ron Wood (guitar)and Rod Stewart (vocals) joined Ronnie Lane (bass), Ian McLagen[?] (keyboards) and Kenney Jones, (drums).

Their most successful songs included "Stay with Me," "Had Me a Real Good Time," "Cindy Incidentally," and "Richmond". As Rod Stewart's solo career became more successful than the Faces themselves, the band became subordinate to their lead singer. The Faces' final studio album was Ooh La La[?] and the band broke up in 1974. The members of the band had varied post-band career: Wood joined the Rolling Stones; Lane formed Slim Chance and had a modest solo career; Jones joined the Who after the death of Keith Moon; McLagen became a session musician; and, of course, Stewart's solo career was massively successful.
