After the Faces broke up in the mid-'70s, McLagan became a sought-after session ninja, appearing on records by the Stones, Jackson Browne, Springsteen, and more recently, Billy Bragg. Eventually he settled in Austin and formed Ian McLagan & the Bump Band. A little less drunk than the Faces, the Bumps kick out plenty of Faces/Stones ya-yas -- but with the border-town influence of Doug Sahm.
McLagan is one of those rare musicians who can cover a Chuck Berry song and not sound like a wedding band. This will be a live experience that you'll hate yourself for blowing off.
