The Faces is a British rock group from the 1960s and 1970s. The Group was formed in 1969, after Steve Marriott left The Small Faces to the band the own band Humble Pie to be set up. New members Rod Stewart (vocals) and Ron Wood continued with the old members of the band Ronnie Lane (bass), Ian McLagan (keyboards) andKenney Jones, (drums). Their albums and live shows were known for the raw energy and wild rhythms. The Faces were a major inspiration for this later British punk bands such as Sex Pistols and The Damned.
Their most successful songs included "Stay with Me", "Had Me a Real Good Time", "Cindy Incidentally" and "Richmond". Rod Stewarts solo career quickly overshadowed The Faces, and the band made one more studio album, Ooh La La, 1975 in deciding to part ways.
After the break-up of the band, the various members went their separate ways. Ron Wood joined the Rolling Stones play; Ronnie Lane formed the band Slim Chance;Kenney Jones went after the death of Keith Moon The Who play at; and McLagan became a session musician. Rod Stewart built a successful solo career on.
