Ian McLagan, Faces and Small Faces Keyboardist, Dead at 69
The charismatic keyboardist who helped define rock classics "Stay With Me" and "Itchycoo Park" succumbs to stroke

  
Ian McLagan, the jovial, charismatic keyboardist for the Faces and Small Faces whose versatile, forceful playing defined rock & roll classics like the Faces' "Stay With Me," passed away in Austin, Texas on Wednesday. A spokesperson for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer confirmed his death to Rolling Stone. He was 69.

Faces/Small Faces' Ian McLagan Warming to Rock Hall Induction
"It is with great sadness and eternal admiration that we report the passing of rock and roll icon Ian McLagan," read the statement. "He died today surrounded by family and friends in his adopted hometown of Austin, Texas due to complications from a stroke suffered the previous day. Ian’s artistry, generosity and warmth of spirit touched countless other musicians and music fans around the world.  His loss will be felt by so many."

"I am completely devastated by this shocking news and I know this goes for [Faces members] Ronnie [Wood] and Rod [Stewart] also," said McLagan's bandmate Kenney Jones.

With the Faces, McLagan co-wrote classics like "Cindy Incidentally" and "You're So Rude." But the musician's defining moment was his Wurlitzer electric piano pounding on "Stay With Me," one of rock's most swaggering, stomping barroom epics. "You can't play 'Stay With Me' halfheartedly," he told Rolling Stone in 2012. "It's not [gently] 'Stay with me…' You have to tell her, 'Stay with me!'" The Faces were the launching pad for Stewart's solo success, and McLagan also played on  Stewart classics like "Maggie May" and "You Wear It Well."



The Faces were notorious for their offstage – and onstage – debauchery. "We were the first band to have a bar on stage, with a waiter serving us," Stewart wrote in his recent autobiography. "It saved on time and energy hopping into the wings for refreshments. It also gave us somewhere to go during interminable drum solos."

McLagan, whose friends called him 'Mac,' was born in Hounslow, England in 1945 and first became interested in rock & roll when he heard "Rock Around the Clock" at the age of 10. Initially a guitar player in skiffle groups, McLagan took piano lessons at the insistence of his mother. "I had piano lessons, which I hated, [but] my mother decided I was going to have [them]. I didn't want piano lessons; what damn good would they do me?" he told Rolling Stone.

After hearing Booker T. and the M.G.'s, he became interested in the organ. McLagan once described another pivotal moment seeing the Rolling Stones in 1963 at the Crawdaddy Club: "The sound, the throbbing bass and the harmonica on top [had] convinced me they were black until I walked in. Then it was a case of, 'Well blimey, I love this music, I'm trying to play it, maybe I can.'"

McLagan became a regular on the London mod scene, but never considered himself one. "I was never really a mod," he wrote. "I thought I was more of a beatnik with the brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, etc. I loved the music Mods liked and I loved the clothes, but I didn't have any money to spend on them."

In 1965, he earned a spot in the Small Faces, joining vocalist Steve Marriott, bassist Ronnie Lane, Jones and keyboardist Jimmy Winston in 1966. They recorded their debut album in three days, producing the classic "Sha La La La Lee" and, later, famed tracks like "Itchycoo Park" and "All or Nothing." Underrated though hugely influential, they had a pioneering psychedelic sound but with heavy, soulful hooks.



"Small Faces were really a soul band as far as we were concerned," McLagan told RS in 2012. "That's what we listened to, that's what we played, you know? We were pretty much based on Booker T. and the M.G.'s." The band never toured the U.S. – McLagan blamed bad management – but said, "We would've been much bigger I'm sure."

In late 1968, Marriott left the band to form Humble Pie. The breakup closely coincided with the disbanding of the Jeff Beck Group; Ronnie Lane called Ronnie Wood and invited him to a jam session. "We all worked on some Booker T. and the M.G.s and Meters stuff and funky grooves – we knew we had that," Ronnie Wood recently told Rolling Stone. Soon, Stewart, Wood, Jones, McLagan and Lane were jamming together at the Rolling Stones' London rehearsal space, becoming the Faces. "There was a pub nearby," Wood says. "We’d do one song, and run to the pub to celebrate!"

After the Faces disbanded and Stewart pursued a solo career, McLagan continued to record with the singer. He also became a go-to session and touring keyboardist, touring and recording with the Rolling Stones and joining Wood and Keith Richards on the road in the New Barbarians in 1979. He played on records by Chuck Berry, Pete Townshend, Thin Lizzy, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen and Warren Zevon and toured with Bob Dylan in 1984.

McLagan moved to Austin, Texas in 1994, and spent recent years touring with his own Bump Band. In 2008, the Faces reunited (with Mick Hucknall standing in for Stewart) for a series of shows and again for the band's 2012 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "I couldn't help but be happy," he said. Even though Rod Stewart missed the gig due to illness, their explosive performance defined the night. "I don't want to be a has-been," McLagan told Rolling Stone afterward. "I play every day. It's what I do; it's what I've been doing for 50 years.""

I can't remember a time without the strains of soul music drifting through our house. With both parents coming from Barbados I was brought up very much in tune with a natural party ethos that went hand in hand with a love of good music.

Carl Cox - Autobiography

Soul Thing
I can't remember a time without the strains of soul music drifting through our house. With both parents coming from Barbados I was brought up very much in tune with a natural party ethos that went hand in hand with a love of good music. My earliest musical memories are of Booker T and the MGs, Aretha Franklin and, of course the great Elvis, and I used to hijack my parents collection of 70's soul 45's and get the whole family grooving round the lounge! I guess the early signs were there - my passion for music combined with an over-whelming desire to entertain as many people as possible.

By 10 I had well and truly caught the bug and was spending every bit of my pocket money on soul and funk records. I got my first pair of decks (just the 2!) by the age of 15 and I started to play as many parties as I could, discovering that I could buzz off a crowd whilst funding my habit at the same time. As the 70's became the 80's I followed the musical trend from soul to disco to hip-hop but it wasn't really until I moved to Brighton in 1986 that I discovered, along with so many others, the pure thrill of acid house.

The 'Summer Of Love' was special for me in more ways than one. It was at the Sunrise rave on the outskirts of London in 1988 that I had had my biggest breakthrough yet. I was already something of a regular on the infamous M1/Orbital rave circuit but it was at Sunrise that I had the idea to hook up a third deck. At 10.30am on a hazy Sunday morning I managed to tempt 15,000 partied out ravers back onto their weary feet and kick the party back into action - it was an amazing experience- and since then my phone has not stopped ringing with offers for 'The 3 Deck Wizard'. I was fortunate enough to participate in many of the events that have gone down in history as defining moments in the history of UK club culture, such as playing the opening night at Rampling's legendary Shoom, running The Project with Oakie as well as holding a residency at Brighton's ZAP club.

With my reputation as a DJ well and truly secured I was able to turn my attentions towards producing. Initially signing to Perfecto I had my first hit in 1992 with 'I Want You' and, believe me, no one was more surprised than me when I found myself performing on Top Of The Pops when my record peaked at number 23 in the UK charts!!

Despite the fact that the follow up 'Does It Feel Good To You' also charted in the top 40, commercial success was never what I had been aiming for, it was all somewhat too far removed from the reality and buzz of setting a dance floor alight. Whilst fellow spinners such as Grooverider and Fabio moved from raves into Jungle, choosing to focus on a very UK and London orientated sound, I couldn't escape the American and European influences that had always been there whilst I was growing up. I have always been very globally minded which comes across in my choice of music, which I use to cross physical and cultural boundaries to bring people together. Essentially my heart lies with house and techno and it was for this reason that I chose to take a back seat from my impending career as a pop star and be true to myself by going underground and re-discovering my roots.

Designer Labels
I started by setting up my first imprint, MMR, for Techno productions. I found that my popularity as a DJ gave me an opportunity to take techno to the masses and my first album FACT (Future Alliance of Communication and Technology) has to this day sold 250,000 copies. I spent 5 years under my own Ultimate Music Management which spawned club nights and tours alike and set up the forward-looking Worldwide Ultimatum to encourage the creative talents of more DJ's such as Josh Abraham's, Trevor Rockcliffe, Earl Gray and DJ Dan. In 1996 Nicky Holloway approached me to start a new night based on the style of music I was playing at the time and Ultimate Base was born at Velvet Underground along with the help of Jim Masters. Over the last 5 years Ultimate Base has showcased some of the world's finest techno DJ's, steered by a futuristic ideal, which very much reflects my own way of thinking.

The last several years have been absolutely mind blowing. In between jet-setting between gigs as far afield as South Africa, Israel, Tasmania and Asia I kick-started my acting career in the classic UK clubbing film 'Human Traffic' and somewhere along the way I found time to start new labels Ultimatum Breaks and Intec to focus on providing quality purist house and techno. I have regularly contributed Essential mixes for Radio One and I followed up the success of FACT (1&2) with several more mix albums including 'Phuture 2000'. My career has been marked by a number of awards - I was awarded IDA 'DJ Of The Year' 2 years in a row, Muzik named me as the Best British DJ and I've had more honours from NME, Dancestar and countless other organisations all over the world.

The time is now
Out of so many highs it is difficult to pin-point the peak for me - it is a close call between The Love Parade and the dawn of the millennium. Playing for a crowd of 1,500,00 up-for-it clubbers in Berlin was the ultimate DJing experience in terms of seeing how wide reaching music can be but then being lucky enough to see in the millennium not once but twice - first on Bondi pavilion, then hopping on a jet over the timeline to Honolulu, Hawaii, was also pretty special.

More recently I have given up my residency at Base in order to concentrate on spreading myself even further afield. But don't worry, in between producing, writing, remixing, presenting, TV appearances, managing, not forgetting DJing I will still be making regular appearances at Base and hanging with the very people who got me where I am today.
