YMMV / The Small Faces

Go To

  • Face of the Band: Steve Marriott.
  • Signature Song: "Itchycoo Park," though the band would likely have preferred it to be "Tin Soldier."
  • Stuck in Their Shadow: Ronnie Lane, who had contributed greatly to the catalogue as well as essentially coming up with the idea for the "Happiness Stan" storyline on Ogden's Nut Gone Flake, was largely overshadowed by the larger-than-life persona of Steve Marriott. This continued into the Faces, where Lane remained a lesser-known member than Stewart and Wood, despite writing many of the band's best-loved songs. And later his solo work was, and continues to be, very highly regarded by those who listened to it, but was not particularly successful (which was perhaps affected in part by the onset of Multiple Sclerosis, which prevented Lane from touring).

How well does it match the trope?
