CLEVELAND (AP) - With lineups that included some rock royalty, British bands The Small Faces and The Faces have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones and Kenney Jones, who played drums for The Who, were just some of the members of the two bands, which had hits like “Itchycoo Park” and “Stay With Me” in the 1960s and `70s. The Small Faces started in 1965 on London’s East End before dissolving when late lead singer Steve Marriott left to start Humble Pie.

Stewart was ill and couldn’t attend the ceremony Saturday night in Cleveland.

Stevie Van Zandt inducted the groups and called them profoundly influential. He said they produced some of the most soulful music ever.
