The NME is reporting that the Faces will reunite with all original members except Ronnie Lane, who died of pneumonia in 1997.
The band is set to meet for rehearsals next Monday, November 17, to run through their old hits but there’s no mention in the article of touring or recording so it could just be some buddies getting together and jamming. Not that the NME hypes non-stories or anything…
Let’s suppose for a moment they are getting ready to record again. Who would you like to see behind the board? I am putting my money on Jack White.
