This past September, The Faces gave their first public performance with original frontman Rod Stewart in more than 20 years, at a U.K. charity event that was co-organized by drummer Kenney Jones. The reunion show featured Stewart and the group’s fellow surviving founding members, Jones and guitarist Ronnie Wood, playing a seven-song set, and raised money for the Prostate Cancer U.K. organization.
Wood says that while the event was a one-off gig, his old band mates are open to playing more reunions in the future.
“Rod and Kenney were really inspired by when we did get back together…a few months ago,” Ronnie tells ABC Radio. “And that was really dipping our toes in the water.”
Wood’s main job these days, of course, is playing with The Rolling Stones, and the band not only has lined up a Latin American tour in early 2016 but is planning to work on a new album after the trek winds down in late March. In addition, Ronnie’s wife, Sally, is expecting to give birth to twins in June.
With that likely in mind, Wood tells ABC Radio that any further Faces activity won’t “happen really before next July,” while adding, “but I know Rod and Kenney are definitely interested.”
Before his busy new year gets underway, Ronnie says he’s hoping to take it easy during the holidays.
“I wanna try and put my feet up and have a little family Christmas,” he explains. “I’ve got a new house in the country, a real old 13th century house, and I’m just looking forward to spending a snowy Christmas there…And then I can get ready to work again.”
The Stones’ América Latina Olé Tour kicks off February 3 in Santiago, Chile.
