With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Turn your music so loud let’s attract a big crowd We’ll drink a round to this town and bid goodbye” December 4, 2014


Ian McLagan Green Circles 87444

It was with great sadness that I heard of the death of keyboard supremo Ian McLagan today aged just 69. His death was caused by complications from a stroke that he suffered earlier this week. Ian or Mac was keyboard player for the Small Faces and the Faces. He also played sessions for the Rolling Stones among others.

His playing of the Hammond Organ was a major part of the Small Faces sound. He also received co-writing credits for some excellent songs. The Faces “Cindy Incidentally” was my favourite of his cowrites. He wrote that song with Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart. He also played on one of my favourite Rolling Stones songs, “Miss You“.

My thoughts are with Ian’s family, friends and fans. RIP Ian McLagan
