'Upward and Onward': Ian 'Mac' McLagan Remembered

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame keyboardist Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan was fond of saying, with gusto, "You know what I like? Everything!" He brought that joie de vivre spirit to his bands The Small Faces and Faces - and it was the same exultant attitude be brought to all of the musicians he played with, as well as to the community of friends he amassed in his adopted hometown of twenty years, Austin, Texas. Mac made no distinction between the rock stars he played with and the friends he made daily. To know Mac was to love him. And the best thing was you knew he loved you back.

Mac - who passed away suddenly at home last December at the age of 69 - will be remembered at this panel by his pals and co-horts, who will share anecdotes of his riotous romp through rock and roll history.

Along with his work with two of rock's all-time greatest bands, Mac's playing with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Billy Bragg, Lucinda Williams and countless others helped make the soundtrack to several generations' lives. But if he was here he'd just as soon have a Guinness and tell a joke as talk about all that rock and roll stuff (it's all in his book "All The Rage" anyway).
