They also released a number of well-received albums, such as “First Step” and “Long Player”.

The Faces disbanded in 1975, but McLagan continued to work with Stewart on his solo albums. He also released a number of solo albums of his own, such as “Bump in the Night” and ” Troublemaker”. In the 1980s, he toured with Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. He also played on albums by artists such as Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams.

In the 1990s, McLagan relocated to Austin, Texas. He formed a band called The Bump Band, which became a fixture on the local music scene. The Bump Band released a number of albums, including “Live at Antone’s” and “Rise Up”. McLagan also released a solo album in 1999, entitled “Usual Suspects”.

In recent years, McLagan has continued to tour and play with a variety of artists. He has also been active in philanthropic work, supporting a number of charities.

1[in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine] I had piano lessons, which I hated, [but] my mother decided I was going to have [them]. I didn't want piano lessons; what damn good would they do me?
2I was never really a mod. I thought I was more of a beatnik with the brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, etc. I loved the music Mods liked and I loved the clothes, but I didn't have any money to spend on them. [on the 1960s London mod scene]
