Ste­wart could re­unite with Beck Group

Kuwait Times - - Lifestyle Gossip -

Rod Ste­wart in­sists it isn’t “too late” for the Jeff Beck Group to re­form. The 73-year-old singer was an orig­i­nal mem­ber of the band, which also fea­tured gui­tarist Jeff Beck, Ron­nie Wood on rhythm gui­tars and var­i­ous drum­mers and bassists, un­til they split af­ter two years in 1969 and he’d like to see them put their dif­fer­ences aside and go out on the road again. He said: “I’m still in con­tact with Ron. He sends me videos of his kids. “But with Jeff, we did try and get to­gether again. I still don’t think it’s too late for us to shrink our egos a lit­tle bit and do it.” Rod and Ron­nie went on to team up with Small Faces mem­bers Ian McLa­gan, Ron­nie Lane and Ken­ney Jones to form The Faces and though both Ian and Ron­nie Lane have passed away, the ‘Mag­gie May’ hit­maker would love to get back on the road with drum­mer Ken­ney and the Rolling Stones gui­tarist if their sched­ules will al­low it. Asked if he’s still in touch with Ken­ney, Rod told Un­cut mag­a­zine: “I might in­vite him over for Christ­mas once or twice if we’re hav­ing a party at the house but we don’t keep in touch like me and Ron do. “There’s al­ways a chance of the Faces get­ting back to­gether. “Just ev­ery time I’m about to start a tour, the Stones are go­ing to start a tour, then I start and they star. We can’t go on for­ever. But I said that 20 years ago.” Rod and Ron­nie ini­tially bonded over their big noses and love of fash­ion. Rod re­called: “We in­tro­duced each other. I said, “Ello Nose’ and he said, “Ello Nose’. We both had big noses. “I think what brought us to­gether was our sense of cloth­ing - we both liked style - and our unique sense of hu­mor. “That’s bonded us to­gether over the years. I don’t see so much of him now, of course.”
