RONNIE LANE AND FACES
Ronnie Lane and Faces
Ronnie Lane formed Faces with Ian Mclagan, Kenney Jones, Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart in 1969.
Good-time Blues Rock was one of the offshoots of British music at the end of the 60s, and the Faces were at the forefront of the movement. Bass player and songwriter Ronnie Lane was the heart and soul of the band.
For four years they toured the world, playing some enormous venues as ‘stadium rock’ took off and selling truck-loads of records written by Ronnie and Rod, like ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Pool Hall Richard’.
He shared primary songwriting duties with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, composing, or co-composing, many of their best-loved pieces and taking a central role during the recording of their fourth and final album, Ooh La La, particularly, as the band’s front man Rod Stewart focused on his own solo career.
In 1973, unhappy due to poor reviews of the album and Stewart’s lack of commitment, Lane quit in 1973, making his last appearance at the Sundown Theatre in Edmonton, London, on 4 June.
When Ronnie left the band soon split, with Rod going on to become a pop superstar and Ron Wood joining The Stones.
He was replaced by Tetsu Yamauchi, but the group made no further studio albums following Lane’s departure and the group split in 1975.
