(SR) On the eve of their induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14th, one of the finest rock groups to emerge from Britain, the Faces and fine book publishers Genesis Publications are proud to announce Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones US retail release of the story about the band in their first ever book.
As part of the US retail debut, internationally renowned Designer John Varvatos is hosting the Faces' Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones in-person as part of the launch of the limited edition book along with Publisher Nick Roylance of Genesis Publications on Wednesday, April 11th, 2012, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at John Varvatos 315 Bowery Boutique, 315 Bowery in New York City.
And, on the afternoon the day before their Rock Hall induction on Friday, April 13th in Cleveland, Nick Roylance, publisher, Genesis Publications and Faces will present the book to Jann Wenner, publisher of Rolling Stone Magazine as well as the owner of Men's Journal and Us Weekly magazine and co-Founder of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; and, Terry Stewart, President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to the Rock Hall Library & Archives continuing the collection as the only museum in the United States to have the entire Genesis catalog.
The limited edition book features original text by Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones along with over 200 photographs charting the band from its formation in late 1969 to its eventual demise in 1975. The photographs, sourced from renowned rock and roll photographers from all over the world, as well as the band's own personal archives, are a stunning mixture of the iconic and never-before-seen. They capture the chaotic intensity of the Faces' career: the incendiary live shows, the on-stage laughs and off-stage high-lives, the private jets, groupies, drink, drugs, clothes, haircuts and Holiday Inns.
Every numbered, hand-bound copy is personally signed by Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan.
