UK Singer from Small Faces. Ian McLagan, small face member on his site said: "Ronnie Lane and I were the giants in the band at 5 ft 6 ins, and Kenney Jones and Steve Marriott were the really teeny tiny chaps at 5 ft 5 1/2 ins."

I’ve heard they were called the Small Faces because they were all shorter than 5'5".

Sorry! What an incredible jerk! I got him mixed up with Ronnie Wood. Now that I see his thumbnail picture, it jogged my memory! Lane was never in the Stones! My boyfriend would kick me such a hard kick up the behind!
It just goes to show how useful the thumbnail pictures are Rob!
yes Sandy, eventually on the pages themselves 95% should have some sort of photo.

@ Glenn, from way-back-when.(21/3/06).
All the members of the Small Faces were small - that is why they were called the SMALL Faces!
One of the best ever mod bands and I used to sing along to their lyrics long, long before I had the vaguest idea how naughty they were!
My favourite was Stevie Marriott and I knew a guy who knew him and plenty more besides, called Chris. Apparently, Steve went out with a woman named Sandy, like me. I had the Small Faces blasting out and that was how Chris approached me!
Ronnie Lane, of course, enjoyed a career with Rod Stewart and the Faces, who were called so as a progression from the original band.
Then, of course, he had his own band Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance and is famous for being in the Rolling Stones!
That is one impressive career spanning SIX DECADES! What an achievement!

According to a 1965 edition of Musical Express, Steve Marriott was 5'4" Ronnie Lane 5'5" Kenny Jones 5'4" and Jimmy Winston 5'6" However, a photo of the group showed Winston towering over the other three so I think the heights of Marriott, Lane and Jones may have been generous.

An article in the musical express 1965 stated the small faces heights were; Steve Marriott 5'4" Ronnie Lane 5'5" Kenny Jones 5'4" and Jimmy Winston 5'6" In the photograph Winstone towered over the others so I think the heights given for Marriott, Lane and Jones were generous!
