Rod Stewart Can No Longer Hit Faces Notes

(Rock News Desk) Faces keyboardist Ian 'Mac' McLagan says Rod Stewart couldn't sing the band's songs in their original keys when they gathered for an attempted reunion and that's one of the reasons why Mick Hucknall was a good choice as another vocalist.

The band have tried to regroup with their original singer on a number of occasions, but after another failure they made the controversial decision to tour with the Simply Red frontman in his place.

And McLagan admits the band weren't happy with the changes required to accommodate Stewart's twenty-first century vocal abilities. "Rod's voice isn't what it was. He had surgery on his vocal cords a few years ago and it's changed the way he sings," The keyboardist tells MusicRadar. "We had some rehearsals a couple of years ago and we basically had to re-learn all the songs in different keys. Ron Wood had to put heavier strings on his guitar and tune everything down. more on this story
