Ronnie Wood saved by The Faces
The Faces believe their reunion "saved" Ronnie Wood.
The 'Stay With Me' hitmakers got back together last year - with Mick Hucknall replacing original frontman Rod Steward and Glen Matlock in place of late bassist Ronnie Lane - and the new singer is convinced their concerts gave the guitarist, who has a history of alcoholism, a sense of purpose again.
Mick said: "Ronnie's amazing. I've never seen him play this well. I think The Faces saved him and there's nothing wrong with that."
However, Mick admits it can be hard for Ronnie - who also performs with the Rolling Stones - to watch his bandmates wind down with alcohol after the show but he doesn't believe it is a "struggle" for him to resist anymore.
Mick added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I still have a drink. I love a drink because I've never had that problem, that disease. I know my limit.
"But it's hard for Ronnie when we come off stage and have a drink and start buzzing.
"Poor Ron wants to get out of it before we start talking rubbish. I think he is still sensitive to it being around but at the same time, I really feel he's not struggling any more."Posted on 21 Jul 2011 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
