Ronnie Wood's Face reunion

Ronnie Wood wants to take a break from The Rolling Stones and reform his old band.

The 60-year-old guitarist has revealed all the members of his former group the Faces - which also included Rod Stewart - will get back together if they can find time in their busy schedules.

He said: "Yeah, I have heard rumours about us reuniting. There just aren't enough hours in the day are there? We'd love to do it if we could, yeah. It could happen."

His comments follow drummer Kenney Jones' claim last year that a reunion had "every chance of happening" after he met Stewart for dinner.

After their band The Jeff Beck Group disbanded in 1969, Wood and Stewart joined Small Faces members - bassist Ronnie Lane, keyboard player Ian McLagan and drummer Jones - to form the Faces.

They released four studio albums before Wood left to join The Rolling Stones in 1975.

Lane had already quit the band in 1973 to pursue a solo career.

The last time the whole band played together was during the encore at Stewart's Wembley concert in 1986.

However, the ailing Lane was forced to take to the stage in a wheelchair, with then Rolling Stones member Bill Wyman filling in for him on bass.

Lane died of pneumonia in 1997 aged just 51.
