Rod Stewart has disclosed that he would "love" to reunite The Faces, but claims that guitarist Ronnie Wood's loyalties still lie with the Rolling Stones.

The Faces scored several hits in the 1970s like 'Stay With Me' and 'Ooh La La', but Wood's increasing involvement with the Stones led to the group's break-up in 1975.

When Wood regrouped The Faces last summer for the Vintage At Goodwood festival, Stewart was unavailable and was thus replaced for the gig by Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall.

Stewart has now said that he is not opposed to reforming The Faces, but cautions that a series of lives dates could hinge on whether Wood joins the Rolling Stones for their rumoured 50th anniversary tour.

"The trouble with Ronnie, we get together and we mess about, but the thing is, he is still committed to the Stones," the 'Maggie May' singer told Billboard. "Talking for myself and the rest of the band, we need a commitment, not just, 'Well, I've got next month off'. It doesn't work like that. It's not very professional.

"If he can give us the time, then I'll commit to that as well. Until he's finished with the Stones, whenever that will be, I can't commit to it. I'd love to. I really would love to."

Stewart recently signed for a two-year residency at Las Vegas's Caesars Palace, which is to begin in August.
