Ian McLagan is a genuine, dyed-in-the-wool rock’n’roller ve as an ideal illustration in the proverbial Dictionary of What Is Truly Cool. The man known to his many mates and even more fans and admirers as 'Mac' is the sort who shrugs off such puffery. The rollicking Faces ruled 1970s album radio and sales charts as well as the stadiums, arenas and festivals around the world, leaving countless satisfied fans, many wild tales and more than a few quivering hotel managers in their wake. In December of 2007 Ian 'Mac' McLagan and Glyn Johns, his old pal from Small Faces and Faces days, met at Sphere Studios in London to mix and master Ian McLagan's beautiful and emotionally raw CD, Never Say Never.
Ian McLagan is a lifer in the best sense of the word - this music is his life, and he's probably going to keep doing it as long as he draws breath - and he's good enough at what he does to keep a real spark in his music a few decades after he first joined the Small Faces. McLagan's easy but powerful groove makes United States another satisfying episode in the life and career of a true rock & roll believer.
