Rolling Stones sideman dies in Austin

🕐 1 min read

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rolling Stones collaborator and Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan has died.

A statement on his official website said the musician died Wednesday in Austin, Texas, after suffering a stroke a day earlier. He was 69.

McLagan was a member of the British pop group Small Faces in the 1960s. The band changed its name to Faces when Rod Stewart and Ron Wood joined in 1969.

Kenney Jones, McLagan’s bandmate in both groups, said he is “completely devastated” at the news, adding, “I know this goes for Ronnie and Rod also.”

McLagan went onto record and perform with the Rolling Stones, playing on the band’s 1978 album “Some Girls,” including the organ solo on the hit single “Miss You.” He released several solo albums, including a tribute to his Small Faces bandmate Ronnie Lane in 2008. McLagan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

He had been scheduled to begin a North American tour Wednesday. His manager, Ken Kushnick, called McLagan “a true rock ‘n’ roll spirit.”
