Ron Wood offers more details on the new Faces songs he is working on with Rod Stewart and Kenney Jones. It turns out that much of the material is from the band’s original period.
Woods says they collaborated at the same time the Rolling Stones were preparing an extended 1981s re-release Tattoo yourself, so he found himself updating the hardware for two separate but very interesting chests.
“I just had the best seat in the house,” said Wood. Rolling stone in a recently published interview that took place before Charlie Watts’ recent death. “We’ve been doing old Stones songs for a long time, when they were never released… and I went straight from… that to working with Rod on Faces songs that never came out exactly around the same time. , the end of the 60s, the beginning of the 70s. And in both groups we managed to find timeless gems. ”
Wood is now saying “In the months or years to come we will be posting some great stuff that people can enjoy the same way we like to discover it again.”
He added that it was “such an adventure during the lockdown to spend about a month reconnecting with songs that I had completely forgotten or those that were put on the back burner. I thought, ‘Wow. Now is the time for these to reappear because they are timeless. ‘”
When asked to compare Stones frontman Mick Jagger to Stewart, Wood said “they like real support. They like to hear, ‘Hey man you did a good job’ because ‘they sell it.… Jagger does his Jagger and Rod does the Rod, but underneath, they want to know they’re on the right track because they value what they do. them is how to please audiences and give the best – the best show, the best album, the best presentation of music.
Wood also discussed the late Faces period classic “Ooh La La”, particularly the key lyrics – “I wish I knew what I know now when I was younger”- meant for him today.
“I wish I knew all the promoters were ripping me off,” Wood said. “It’s like, ‘Oh, my God. These guys opened up a supermarket and a chain restaurant, and I’m on 50 pounds for the week or something. It’s like, ‘Wow, I wish I knew then what I know now.’ It can be funny. It’s life on the terms of life, you know?
