THE Rolling Stones might be the talk of Europe after their performance at Glastonbury, but Rod Stewart reckons he is still a better singer than Mick Jagger.

Stewart (68) said he would like to reunite the Faces, the 1970s rock band that featured Ronnie Wood.

The singer said he hoped to get the group back together next year, and said that despite their reputation as womanisers, they were "so into each other we didn't care about groupies".

"I'd like to return with the Faces. Ronnie and I talk about it, and when the Stones finish – Mick Jagger (69) is older than me – we'll have a window of opportunity if we're not on zimmers. Mick's a fine blues singer, but technically not as good as me. He's made the best of what he's got, but I don't think he could do standards and he may not want to."

Stewart also talked about a forthcoming BBC documentary on his career, but said some areas had been off limits, including his train set.

"There are very few places in my life that I like to keep private: that's one of them. Every three years 'Model Railroader' magazine puts me on their cover, which is better than 'Rolling Stone'." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
