Rod Stewart: ‘Ronnie Wood and I talk about a Faces reunion’

Singer also claims he is a better singer than Mick Jagger

Rod Stewart says he is keen to reform The Faces with Ronnie Wood, and suggests a reunion could happen if and when The Rolling Stones decide to retire.

The Faces formed in 1969 and released four studio albums. The band reformed in 2009 for a one-off charity show with guest vocalists replacing the absent Rod Stewart.

Speaking to The Express, Stewart said that he is interested in getting the band back together, if they are not too old when a window of opportunity presents itself. “I’d like to return with The Faces. Ronnie and I talk about it, and when the Stones finish – Mick is several years older than me – we’ll have a window of opportunity, if we’re not on Zimmers,” he said.

Bragging that he is a better singer Mick Jagger, Stewart continues: “Mick’s a fine blues singer – but technically not as good as me. He’s made the best of what he’s got. But I don’t think he could do standards – he may not want to.”

The Rolling Stones, meanwhile, headlined the Saturday night of Glastonbury this past weekend (June 29). A peak audience of 2.5 million tuned in to BBC2 to watch the band’s historic headline set. The band made their debut appearance at Worthy Farm on the Pyramid Stage on the second day of Glastonbury 2013. Their set included ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Paint It, Black’ and ‘Brown Sugar’ and the encore featured a rendition of ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ backed by an all-female choir.
