some big names today for you in my little chart, really big ones and thus something you wouldn't normally expect to find here on Sexyloser .... which is commonly known as a place for the lesser known bands of our time, or, if you'd rather, stuff no-one cares for but me.
Also today's choice comes from an era which by and large is not my cup of tea really: the early seventies. Something I always connect with clapped out old hippies playing endlessly long and boring guitar solos. Not on this occasion, friends, and that's for sure!
I must admit I don't know pretty much about Faces' back catalogue, the truth of the matter might well be that below single is the only one I know. Nevertheless it is an outstanding record and I can only urge you to give it a listen, so please enjoy your number ten, folks:
Faces - 'Pool Hall Richard' (mp3)
Warner Bros. Records - K 16341 (1973)
As far as the "big names" are concerned, the Faces' line-up was as follows:
Kenney Jones (dr), Ronnie Lane (b/ voc), Ian McLagan (kb), Rod Stewart (voc) and Ron Wood (git/voc) ... I think we all know that Rod Stewart became a megastar, but what you youngsters might not know is that:
- Jones joined The Who after the death of Keith Moon,
- Wood joined the Rolling Stones as a full member,
- Lane later worked together with Pete Townshend of The Who,
- McLagan joined the Rolling Stones as some kind of sideman.
If you read this whilst being in your twenties: both The Who and The Stones used to be very big back then, so there you are ....
A real corker, friends, and I do hope you played that one really loud!!
