Rod Stewart has ruled out joining the reunion of his former band The Faces unless guitarist Ronnie Wood quits The Rolling Stones.
The Stay With Me hitmakers reunited last year but were forced to take on Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall after their former frontman Stewart refused to join them for the comeback.

Now the Maggie May singer has revealed his reason for shunning his ex-bandmates – he is concerned Wood’s heart is not in the reunion because he is still “committed” to his work with the Stones.

Stewart tells Billboard, “The trouble with Ronnie, we get together and we mess about, but the thing is, he is still committed to the Stones. Talking for myself and the rest of the band, we need a commitment, not just, ‘Well, I’ve got next month off’. It doesn’t work like that. It’s not very professional.

“If he can give us the time, then I’ll commit to that as well. Until he’s finished with the Stones, whenever that will be, I can’t commit to it. I’d love to. I really would love to.”
