Faces to reunite--without Rod Stewart

Remember the British band the Faces? The name probably seems familiar..and if you're like me you confuse them with the Small Faces, so here's a refresher. Faces formed from the ashes of the Small Faces (with Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan) and the Jeff Beck Group (where we got Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood). The Small Faces' biggest hit was " Itchykoo Park." The Faces' big one was "Stay With Me." If any of that seems even slightly familiar to you, you might be interested to know the Faces are reuniting, without Rod Stewart. According to Rollingstone.com, three of the original members of the legendary British band — guitarist Ronnie Wood, drummer Kenney Jones and keyboardist Ian McLagan — will team up with Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall and Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock and will play at least one big festival in England. While I'm not a huge fan of Mick Hucknall or Simply Red, I am holding back the tears over Rod Stewart passing on this offer. That's because he's turned into a big puffy parody of an aging rock star, and the Faces would be better off without him. Since 2002 he's just been putting out albums of cover songs (he calls them The Great American Songbook Volume 1, 2. etc), and while they do manage to sell a lot of copies, I think it's just SAD! I saw Rod Stewart in concert at the Kohl Center a decade or so ago and felt like I was trapped inside some giant Vegas lounge show...and I couldn't even get a mixed drink!  And when he kicked the soccer balls into the audience I didn't get one! And there were no slot machines! Okay..enough bitching.  Here's a video of the Faces with Rod Stewart. Back when he wasn't such a freakshow. (But his hairstyle leaves a lot to be desired and his facial hair is kinda creepy).

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
