Firstly, please excuse Rod's rear-end proximity to the camera at the start of the following clip.

Keith Richards guested for at least one gig with The Faces in late 1974, prior to Woody joining The Stones.

Was it one gig only? A few gigs? A tour? Does anyone know, or is there further info on this?

Ronnie Lane leaving was the death knell of the band. It took a tour to realize it, but it just wasnt the Faces. He was the primary songwriter. Rod said he was the heart of the band. His solo career beckoned & gave Woody the perfect excuse to leave & join the Stones.

A band only works when the members really care about it, put their work and pride into it. Once everyone is looking for greener grass elsewhere, the band's on borrowed time.

I don't know the answer to the question, but it likes like Rod borrowed part of his stage clothes from another Rod.

I think Keith was just sitting in. That was around the time he helped Ronnie out and played on his first solo album. It was also the time when The Stones were looking for replace Mick Taylor and Keith was sussing Ronnie out as a replacement. They were getting to know each other musically and personally.
