Singer Mick Hucknall received the ultimate seal of approval after standing in for Rod Stewart when The Faces were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - the Maggie May hitmaker was delighted he helped out.
The former Simply Red star, who joined the group in 2010 for a series of shows after Stewart opted out of the reunion, caught a last-minute flight to Ohio for the ceremony in April (12) when Stewart was too ill to attend.
He was delighted when he later received a series of emails from Stewart thanking him for taking his place alongside Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian MCLagan at the event.
Hucknall tells Q magazine, "It was Friday morning. I got a text: 'Mick, please come to Cleveland, Rod's got the flu. We're desperate! We love you!'. We had two hours to book a flight. I got on the flight, landed and went straight to rehearsals... Anyway, Rod was brilliant about it - he's been in contact with emails, he's been very grateful that I helped out."
