Stewart considers Faces reunion

Rod Stewart has confirmed he's considering a reunion of his iconic British rock act The Faces - if they can come up with enough material for a one-off concert.

Rod Stewart has confirmed he's considering a reunion of his iconic British rock act The Faces - if they can come up with enough material for a one-off concert.

The Maggie May singer admits he has been reluctant to stage a get together with former bandmates Kenny Jones, Ian McLagan and Ron Wood in recent years because, without late bass player Ronnie Lane, the group would not have felt complete.

However, now the singer insists the only thing stopping a reunion is the setlist.

He tells men's magazine Blender: "I would reform them for the right reasons - maybe a big one-off charity event.

"Also we haven't got enough material. We only used to play live for 45 minutes; people want two hours now."

But Stewart is confident a reunion concert would reignite his passions to write his own songs.

He adds: "BONO keeps telling me that I've got to start writing songs again, so I suppose that's the next one up. I haven't written for a long time, but I've started picking up the old acoustic guitar again."
