New Musical Express 1973


Ronnie "Plonk" Lane, founder member of the Faces, this week announced his decision to quit the group.
Just returned from the band's seventh American tour, Lane Commented:
"It's time to move on - I feel the need for a change." The NME understands that Lane will be making a statement on his future plans when he returns from a holiday in France about ten days' time.
Lane's departure will not affect the Faces' upcoming British and European dates, which will go ahead as planned - this includes their concerts at London Edmonton Sundown on June 1, 3, and 4. The group are currently auditioning for a new bassist, and expect to be able to announce Lane's replacement very shortly.
In an official statement, drummer Kenny Jones said: "Ronnie obviously wants to do something of his own, and there is no reason why we should stand in his way." Keyboards man Ian McLagan told the NME: "The split was all very amicable, but it's for everyone's good really."
