Ian McLagan, keyboard player for both the Small Faces and the Faces, has said he is not interested in a reunion with Rod Stewart.

McLagan talked with Britain's Uncut Magazine, telling them that he and drummer Kenney Jones will be spending 2015 working on 50th anniversary activities for the Small Faces. Stewart had recently announced he had talked to Ronnie Wood and a reunion of the latter group was a real possibility for the same year.

Along with already having plans, McLagan is upset with Stewart not showing up at two previous possible reunions with the group, including their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In Stewart's defense, he said he was sick and couldn't travel to the U.S. for the event.

Instead, the Faces brought in Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall to fill in for Stewart during a number of festivals and shows. McLagan said "It's interesting that Rod announces these things without talking to me or Kenney. Why would we fuck around with the Faces when we've got bigger fish to fry? We've done the Faces and he didn't turn up.

"Rod says he's keen to do it now, and I believe him, But he'll have to wait until 2016 because 2015 is The Small Faces' year."

The Small Faces, at their peak, were:

•Steve Marriott - vocals, guitar
•Ronnie Lane - bass
•Ian McLagan - keyboards
•Kenney Jones - drums

The Faces were:
•Rod Stewart - vocals
•Ronnie Wood - guitar
•Ronnie Lane - bass
•Ian McLagan - keyboards
•Kenney Jones - drums
