Yesterday we were saddened to learn of the death of multitalented music great Ian McLagan at age 69. In memory and tribute, last night on the Current Bill DeVille presented ten songs featuring McLagan. Listen to those songs above; you can also enjoy the session McLagan recorded in our studios this past January.


Small Faces: "Tin Soldier"
Rod Stewart: "True Blue"
The Faces: "Glad and Sorry"
The Faces: "Ooh La La"
The Faces: "Cindy Incidentally"
The Faces: "Stay With Me"
The Rolling Stones: "Miss You"
Paul Westerberg: "Runaway Wind"

Friends, fans, and fellow musicians have been remembering Ian McLagan, including Nick Lowe who performed in The Current studio yesterday before his First Avenue gig where Mac was scheduled to open.
