Faces Book Available for the First Time in 10 Years
30 Sep 2021
Ten years following the release of Faces, 1969-75
, the first ever book by one of rock music's most-loved supergroups, Genesis are proud to be releasing the final copies from this classic edition. From a limited run of only 1,975 copies worldwide, just 300 remain available.
The book features over 200 images sourced from many of the world's greatest rock photographers, as well as the band's own private archives, presenting a stunning mix of iconic and previously unpublished photographs. Faces tour memorabilia are also reproduced: setlists, call sheets, concert tickets, programs, posters and backstage passes.
These images are accompanied by an original text written by Ronnie Wood
, Kenney Jones, and the late Ian McLagan. Together, Faces, 1969-75
charts the band's brief but thrilling trajectory, from their formation in 1969 to their eventual split in 1975.
It captures the chaotic intensity of the Faces' career: the incendiary live shows, the on-stage laughs and off-stage high-lives, the private jets, groupies, drink, drugs, clothes, haircuts and Holiday Inns. The book features contributions from Paul Weller
, Slash, Mick Hucknall and Glen Matlock, and is signed by the authors: Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan and Ronnie Wood.
'We looked good and we were having a good time, and the kids liked it. It was obvious that we were having fun.' - Ian McLagan
'It was all parties and rock'n'roll, everything you could think of a rock star should be doing and we did it to the fullest and beyond...' - Kenney Jones
'When you're enjoying yourself, times just goes by. We used to enjoy being together so much that days would go by.' - Ronnie Wood
The last 300 copies, which are now available to pre-order in a special red and gold binding, will be shipping in January 2022. To avoid disappointment, order now.
