    Sorry davidb, but The Faces without Ronnie Lane, can never be the real mccoy. Someting that became apparent to Stewart, Wood, McLagan and Jones not long after he left. He was the perfect counterpoint to Stewart and also allowed Wood his own space.

    i agree but they did carry on without him after he left in the mid 70s because he thought they were just becoming rods backing band [ or did he ? ] anyway let ian mcglagan and kenny jones earn a few bob out of it [ rod and ronnie will have enough ] ,they were a great band the faces .

    The Smiths (never gonna happen though--Morrissey hates Joyce and Rourke)

    The Stone Roses (I'd bet money this will happen one day)

    If I was a miracle worker it would have to be Queen.

    John Cipollina, David Frieberg, Gary Duncan, Greg Elmore - the mighty Quicksilver Messenger Service



    Anyone unfamiliar with their work, there's Cipollina's highly melodic, individualistic lead guitar style, combined with Gary Duncan's driving guitar work, featuring a clear jazz sound.

    McGuinn, Crosby and Hillman - the surviving original Byrds. Apparently two of them are up for it, but McGuinn isn't interested. Which is a pity, because he's okay solo..but you don't half miss the harmonies on some of those songs.

    davidb I've nothing against Mac earning a few quid and Kenny could always do with a few more polo ponies. My point is really that The Faces at their peak were not Rod's backing group, nor a Wood/Stewart vehicle. I followed them all the way - first show LSE last one not sure but perhaps in KIlburn when Keith Richard came on for the encore. I'll keep my memories and skip the old lags re-union.

    Their first album and "Happy Trails" remain as two of my most favourite albums of all time.



    Was listening to QMS (1st album) only last night. Sadly John passed away in 1989. How he ended playing n the mediocre (IMHO), Welsh band, Man, is beyond me !







    Another West Coast band who could reform is the mighty Jefferson Airplane. Not likely to though. Paul Kanter still tours as Jefferson Starship whilst Grace Slick has pursued a career in other artistic areas.

    Yes, in more than one interview I've read. He says that Mcguinn's wife regards him as a bad influence!

    As a drum 'n' bass band? They're still the band I listen to most days and the ol' iPod is half full of their recordings but even if John and George were still with us it would never work.



    I'd love The Jam to reform, but Weller's so far up his own arse he needs a sat-nav.

    Come to think of it Ronnie Lane not only left The Faces, but avoided the Small Faces re-union a few years later too. A man of great talent and considerable integrity. He made some great records.

    I'm with James Fox re The Stone Roses. But I doubt it'll happen unless there's silly money involved as I don't think Brown and Squire have spoken since he left.



    The Velvet Underground can't reform now, but I'd like to see Reed and Cale do something together again.

    How awesome is The Fool?



    With the lovely understated violin



    Eleven plus minutes of sheer joy. And to think it was recorded in 1968!

    i'd like to see 'the la's' reform-they split before they'd even got going and the bassist went on to form 'cast' who are another favourite band of mine.
