Faces make donation to Rock Hall’s new library

- Associated Press - Friday, April 13, 2012

CLEVELAND (AP) - On the eve of their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, guitarist Ronnie Wood and other members of British bands The Small Faces and The Faces donated materials to the hall's new library and archives.

Wood, best known for his time with the Rolling Stones, was joined by Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, who were in The Small Faces before the band re-formed as The Faces with Rod Stewart.

The three are donating books and personal items to the library's vast collection of recordings, periodicals, photographs and other musical documents. McLagan said the library keeps materials "alive" that would normally be discarded but now will be preserved for future generations.

The Small Faces/Faces will perform Saturday without Stewart, who is sick and cannot attend.
