As the drummer with The Small Faces, Faces and The Who, Kenney Jones has been at the heart of three of the biggest bands ever to have come out of the UK.

In 1965 when Jones was 16 he had his first hit record when he shot to fame with The Small Faces, who were at the heart of the Mod revolution which swept Britain at the time, and a band who have been cited as a major influence on musicians during the 40 years which have followed.

When The Small Faces split Kenney was instrumental in forming The Faces and inviting Rod Stewart to feature as lead singer in a line-up which also included Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and Ronnie Lane. The Faces split in the mid-70’s and Kenney along with Steve Marriott, Ian McLagan and new man, Rick Wills, re-form The Small Faces, touring for a couple of years and making two albums before deciding to call it a day.

By this time Kenney was recognised as one of the top drummers in the rock industry, and it was no surprise that he was The Who’s choice to replace Keith Moon after his tragic death in 1978. Once again Kenney found himself part of a hugely successful band as The Who toured the world and recorded new albums, ‘Face Dances’ and ‘It’s Hard.’ After leaving The Who, Kenney hooked up with former Bad Company singer, Paul Rodgers to form The Law in the early 1990’s, releasing a critically acclaimed album ‘The Law”.

Although The Small Faces, The Faces, The Who and The Law have been the four main bands in his life, Kenney has also been much sought-after during his career and has performed with some of the biggest names around. He has recoded a single of his own called ‘Ready or Not,’ and has appeared on many albums including those by The Rolling Stones, Andy Fairweather Low, Joan Armatrading, Marsha Hunt, Mike Batt, Pete Townshend, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, David Essex and Wings.
