Ian McLagan in critical condition at Austin hospital
December 3, 2014


AUSTIN (KXAN) – Iconic local musician Ian McLagan is in critical condition at an Austin hospital with what a source tells KXAN is a head injury.

Mac, as he’s known, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with “Small Faces” and “Faces” in 2012. He has also worked with the Rolling Stones.

Ian McLagan 1945-2014
December 3, 2014


BY TODD V. WOLFSON

Tuesday, first-call Rolling Stones sideman Bobby Keys died from cirrhosis two weeks shy of his 71st birthday, and now McLagan, 69, another weapon in the arsenal of the World’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band™, has passed on. We spoke with both the former saxophonist and latter keyboardist when Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie et al. rolled through Zilker Park in 2006.
Two years earlier, Jim Caligiuri sat down with McLagan on the occasion of Faces box set Five Guys Walk Into a Bar.... That was a decade after the Chronicle’s initial feature on the organist following his move here in 1993.
 
While he never got over the vehicular death of his wife Kim in 2006 (the former Mrs. Keith Moon), he kept up a regular regimen of shows locally. 2013 saw the release of Live at the Lucky Lounge. This June, McLagan’s Bump Band marked the 10th anniversary of its residency at the Fifth Street speakeasy.
That same month, Playback columnist Kevin Curtin spoke with Mac (as his friends called him) about the release of the eighth and best LP of his solo career, United States. At that juncture, two months prior to a marathon hoot night paying tribute to Small Faces/Faces at the Sahara Lounge – for which McLagan was in attendance – he confirmed that a Faces reunion was finally on the books.
“We will be touring next year, and I’m very excited,” said McLagan. “The fact is we always wanted Rod [Stewart] to do it. Every single time we asked him, it didn’t work. This time, he wants to do it. So I hope and pray nothing happens between now and then, because it would be great.”
