    Rod, Ronnie and Kenney Jones closing the Brits last night. Have to say, I really enjoyed this. Obviously some of the energy is gone but for three guys in their seventies I have nothing to complain about!

    Rod's a silly sausage, but I love the Faces so much that I am happy to see the three of them who are left have a bit of fun.

    I know they're older, the performance is great when you consider it's 50 years. But. If I'm listening to my favourite rock n roll song... I'll watch this one!

    So do I. Great posting. I think Ronnie deserves more credit than he generally gets. The guy was there from the start and is still standing proud and having a ball. Keep rocking man!

    Thanks for the vid. They were so good live in their heyday - loose, raucus, having a good time onstage, and infectious.

    RIP Mac and Ronnie.

    Good to hear that much of Rod's voice has survived.

    It was kinda touch and go there for a while. He's more in the range of Gary Brooker now.

    +

    Why is Ronnie so much better of a player with The Faces than he is with the Stones? Is the guy really sandbagging all the time with his "main job" now?

    It's a different gig. One guitar in the band vs two. One band he wrote all the riffs, a sideman in the other. Also, one band broke up more than 40 years ago.

    Hey, I saw this too. It was easily the best performance of the night. They were having so much fun.

    It's a shame that Rod couldn't be bothered with The Faces while Ian McLagan was alive.

    That said, it's good to see the three of them jamming.

    I always wished that the Faces stayed together. Ronnie was pretty awesome in that group!

    always thought the Stones wasted Ronnie. they could have had so many more songs, the guy knows a riff
