As the swinging 1960s turned into the '70s, UK mod/psych-pop heroes the Small Faces splintered into different directions, one of which was the Faces. Fronted by future Stones guitarist Ron Wood and future superstar Rod Stewart, the Faces were one of the key rock & roll bands of the early '70s, a brash, swaggering, alcohol-fueled font of bluesy, good-time music. Over time, Stewart became focused on his solo career and the Faces (who also backed him on his own albums) took a back seat. By 1975 the band fell apart. Subsequently, Wood joined the Stones, Ronnie Lane went solo, and Kenney Jones replaced Keith Moon in the Who.
