Kelly the man for the Faces

Jones would be Rod's choice

posted by Mike Walton

Rod has told Wales On Sunday that he believes Kelly Jones would be the perfect choice of frontman should the Faces ever reunite again.

He said the Stereophonics star would make an excellent stand-in for his unique delivery having already topped the charts covering his 1970 hit Handbags And Gladrags.

“Kelly’s a good little shouter, although not quite as good as me, mind you,” laughed Rod.

He also told the reporter that he thought Mick Hucknall had done a good job, the only problem being that they played all the songs in the same keys as the Faces recorded them 40 years ago.

'Mick was struggling to get up there and even I can’t get to those high notes anymore,But Kelly’s a good buddy of Ronnie’s and he could have nailed that range easily – but I doubt they could have afforded him,” he said.

Rod was talking to Wales On Sunday to promote his forthcoming gig at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea on 1st June.
