Unlike [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Blues Brothers[/lastfm], they were an established act who will be indicted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame on April 14. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Faces[/lastfm], along with former front man Rod Stewart, haven’t all performed together since the BRIT awards in 1993.
“Contrary to what some people might think, we’re all still great mates and we’ve never said we wouldn’t play together again. We all had dinner about a month ago and decided that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame would be the perfect time and place. The last time we rehearsed together was about three years ago at a little place in Bermondsey, the same place where we used to rehearse back in the ’70s, just to see if the magic was still there – and it was. We ended up not doing anything more for a couple of reasons, including Rod’s busy solo schedule and his Vegas commitments, which is why we brought in Mick (Hucknall) for a few dates. As to whether we’ll do anything else after the Hall Of Fame show, we’ll just have to see how it goes. I’d like to think there’s more to come, although it depends how everyone’s individual schedules are shaping up. But we’re all really looking forward to getting up on stage again, it’s been far too long.”
Amen to that.
