Rolling Stones collaborator and Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, 69, died Wednesday in Austin, Texas, after suffering a stroke a day earlier, according to his official website.
Mr. McLagan in the 1960s was a member of the British pop group Small Faces, which changed its name to Faces when Rod Stewart and Ron Wood joined in 1969.
Mr. McLagan went onto record and perform with the Rolling Stones, playing on the band's 1978 album Some Girls, including the organ solo on the hit single "Miss You." He released several solo albums, including a tribute to his Small Faces bandmate Ronnie Lane in 2008. Mr. McLagan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
He had been scheduled to begin a North American tour Wednesday. His manager, Ken Kushnick, called Mr. McLagan "a true rock-and-roll spirit." - AP
