    Just Mac, though I ran into Rod once or twice when he was folking.
    Long John Baldry, whom I knew in the old days (and now lives in Canada) discovered Rod on Balham Station. Funny thing is, I used to play on Balham Station, too. Blimey! Does that mean I might have been the lead singer with the Faces if I'd been there at the right time ?
    We all come from the same basic background, went to the same gigs, were on the same circuits. Essentially the British blues/R&B scene. Mac's about five years younger than me. I was an old hippy when he was a young mod.

    Well that's true to an extent, but I thought Rod's voice suited the Faces musical style. Stay With Me is a great song. Did you know the rest of the guys as well, or just Mac? They always looked like they were having a great time on stage from the clips I've seen.

    Bump Band CDs to choose from, many very good indeed.

    Ah, The Faces. Rod Stewart did his best work when he was with them.

    Oo! and Mark Andes, late of Spirit, who should have been much bigger. It's a bit far for me though.

    Bump Band Tour

    Just to let you know that Mac McLagan and the Bump Band are going to be touring, mostly in California, this month. LA, San Francisco, San Diego and other gigs. Check out macspages for details. Mac and I share a common past. He's the keyboard player of the Faces and has played with some of the greatest rock and rollers of our time, including
    the Stones and Dylan. His book All the Rage is the best book about
    British rock and roll that I know. He's a great bloke. A rock and roll legend! Go and see him, if you get the chance.
