In fact, his antics with the Faces have paralleled Ronnie's other interests – they can be considered an art in themselves! As his rock and roll career progressed however, so did the size of venues being trashed; as they progressed from hotel rooms to the stages themselves. But far from scaring the fans, as Rod often threw the microphone and stand into the crowd, they loved it; eventually it became synonymous with the act itself. Although, the hotel chains took a slightly dimmer view of the carnage caused by Ronnie and the gang. The Faces were the first group to be banned from not one, but every single Holiday Inn.
Whilst cynics may argue that their hotel room antics were purely to create publicity for new albums, and promote their gigs this was not really the case. As Ronnie said, “we did it because we felt like it”; the truth behind both their hotel room madness and more importantly their music.
