Will Keith Richards gate crash Faces reunion?

By | Published on Friday 25 June 2010

According to the Express, Keith Richards might appear at the previously reported Faces reunion show, due to take place at the Vintage At Goodwood festival on 13 Aug.

As previously reported, original Faces members Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan will play together at the August festival this summer, with Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock filling in for the late Ronnie Lane and Mick Hucknall for the too-busy-to-take-part-apparently Rod Stewart. A 2011 tour with that line up is also being mooted.

But according to the Express, Wood’s Rolling Stones bandmate Keith Richards might also appear on stage, though it does all seem rather speculative at the moment. They quote a source as saying that Richards is getting bored waiting for Mick Jagger to commit to more Stones activity, and is looking for other projects.

Said source says: “Ronnie and Keith have talked about Keith coming on board for a guest appearance with the Faces. At the end of the day Keith just wants to play and he enjoys playing with Ronnie more than most people”.
