The reformed The Babys are hoping reports of a The Faces reunion tour are for real this time - because they want to land a support slot if the rockers hit the road again. The group, featuring Rod Stewart's longtime backing bandmates Wally Stocker and Tony Brock, have reunited without John Waite and Jonathan Cain to record its first album in three decades. Launching the well-received I'll Have Some of That in Burbank, California on Wednesday night (25Jun14), drummer Brock told WENN he'd love to hook up with his former boss for a The Babys/The Faces tour. He said, "I love so many of those Faces songs and we have a lot of links to them - I'm friends with (Faces drummer) Kenney Jones, and Wally and I learned a lot from Rod. "He (Stewart) has been putting off a Faces reunion for several years, but he says he's gonna do it this time and we'd love to hit the road with them. It would be perfect. We're like two peas in a pod." Bandmate Stocker adds, "They're a great example of a very untidy rock 'n' roll band - that was their appeal. We'd love to tour with them." The two rock veterans certainly have some history with Faces frontman Stewart - Brock was the singer's drummer for 12 years after The Babys split in 1981. Stocker also toured with Stewart in between projects with Air Supply and Humble Pie.
