So - I'm trawling through YouTube, and I find a clip of the Small Faces on an old, forgotten 60's film. Here's the clip... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4wkgHCBXWo - can anyone put a name to the second guitarist, the guy with the Rickenbacker? There's a close up of him at about 7:09..... as far as I knew, the Small Faces were a 4-piece band - Steve Marriott, guitar and vocals; Ronnie Lane, bass guitar and vocals; Ian McLagan, keyboards; and Kenny Jones, drums. So who the heck is the fifth wheel? I'm totally baffled....

:) :) :)

According to IMDB the Faces were:

Kenney Jones ... Himself (as The Small Faces)
Ronnie Lane ... Himself (as The Small Faces)
Steve Marriott ... Himself (as The Small Faces)
Jimmy Winston ... Himself (as The Small Faces)

Winston was later replaced by Ian McClagan

The credits on their 1966 "Small Faces" album are:

Steve Marriott - vocals, guitar
Ronnie Lane - backing vocals, bass guitar
Kenney Jones - drums
Ian McLagan - keyboards
Jimmy Winston - vocals, keyboards

There are 2 keyboard credits, because Winston was removed from the group during recording, so appears on most tracks, and McClagan on the rest. Winston didn't appear on the record cover - that was McClagan.

The film was a 1966 release, so it can only have been one of these.

One of my facebook friends said it's probably Jimmy Winston - I found a nice article on the Small faces here... http://www.makingtime.co.uk/rfr/story1.htm which mentioned that in the film, Jimmy Winston played guitar because there was no organ track.

:D :D :D

BTW, Noteboat - Jimmy McCullough would have been about 11-12 when that film came out! I know he was only 15 when he played on "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, and that was in 1969!

Yeah, I knew he'd have been about 12 - but I think he started gigging at 10. And there's a definite resemblance to the picture I'd linked to.
