This is another post in a continuing series of videos I have created as a tribute to my favorite songs of all time.
You could say that being a part of The Faces was the start of success for two of the most successful and enduring rock stars of our time, Rod Stewart and Ron Wood.
The Faces began as a collaboration of five guys from two relatively successful bands that had broken up . . . The Jeff Beck Group and The Small Faces. The band and their sound was awesome, however, there was one problem . . . Rod Stewart had high aspirations for himself . . . he wanted to be a superstar.
As the group put out studio albums and regularly toured, Rod Stewart was pursuing his career as a solo artist. As his success grew, so did the tension and resentment within the band. In the end, Ron Wood started touring with The Rolling Stones and eventually joined the band . . . and he is currently a member of the band to this day. The Faces broke up soon after.
Although attempts at reunions have been made through the years, the band that could have been never "was" again. Blame it on ambition, aspirations . . . and egos.
Ooh La La has been one of my favorite songs since the first time I heard it . . . as a fan, I am grateful that the egos collided long enough to put out some awesome music.
