I got an email from Wolfgang's Vault recently, with a video announcement for (Rod Stewart and) 'The' Faces.
Prior to hearing them mentioned here, I'd never heard of Faces; my only experience was with Rod Stewart, and that experience has never been a good one. Not a fan in the least.
However, in taking the time to listen to Faces, I was floored as to the quality and the difference in the rock, including Stewart, fronting the band. Day and night.
I did read that Rod Stewart was ill when Faces was recently inducted into the RnR HoF (shame), and could not, therefore, perform with them for the ceremony. But why has Faces had such a low profile in terms of their history or acclaim? Under-appreciated (except for Ron Wood)? Any back story?
