New Faces for Rock Hall's library

Ronnie Wood made rock and roll history with his guitar and now he is making sure it is preserved.

On the eve of his second induction into America's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the former Rolling Stone and two other members of British bands The Small Faces and The Faces donated a biography of the bands to the hall's new library and archives.

Wood was joined by Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, who were in The Small Faces before the band reformed as The Faces with Rod Stewart as its lead singer.

The three musicians donated the biography, Faces, that chronicles the history of both bands to the library's vast collection of recordings, periodicals, photographs and other documents.

The archives, a few miles from the Rock Hall in Cleveland, Ohio, opened in January and was officially dedicated this week. Housed inside a new four-storey building are materials chronicling rock history donated by some of music's most significant figures.

The archives will be a place for fans, students and scholars to have access to items including lyric sheets, personal papers and rare concert footage.

McLagan said the archives would ensure rock's rich history is passed down to future generations.

"When I came here before, I saw a Muddy Waters room and got to see one of his jackets and his guitar, posters and photographs," he said. "It keeps them alive. Brilliant."

Faces, who had hits like Itchycoo Park and Stay With Me, will perform with Simply Red's Mick Hucknall, a friend of the band, singing vocals.

Wood left the Jeff Beck Group with Stewart to join The Faces in 1969. He said he is thrilled the band's two versions are being enshrined. "It's about time," he said. "That's about all I can say."
