BP Fallon writes:
It’s a year ago today since Ian McLagan died. It was so shocking, this effervescent man so suddenly gone. I heard the news from Austin and in New York I wept. Can I tell you how amazing Mac was/is? No need. You know. Magical on the keyboards, magical as a man, twinkling onwards through any passing storms… Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan of Small Faces/Faces, played with The Stones, was in Dylan’s band, in The New Barbarians with his chums Keith and Ronnie and the mighty Bobby Keys. And so on, including gracing the BP Fallon & The Bandits album with his incredible Hammond organ.

I found this old message that Mac had sent me on FB in 2011. He said “Lots of love BP. If I ever download those pics from my UK phone there’s a bunch of great ones of us from upstairs at Whelans. See you soon Mac x”. Whelans is a venue in Dublin where Mac had played and we’d had such fun. I never dreamed then that one day he’d play on our record. Well, I never dreamed I’d make records, it never occurred to me. Then it happens. Amazing. I’m so honoured that Mac played with us.

These pictures below are our little tribute to the great Ian McLagan. I wish he was still here with us. I love him. It breaks my heart.

‘Upward and Onward’- Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan Remembered

A bunch of Ian McLagan’s friends gathered at SXSW in Austin earlier this year to pay tribute to their pal.

On the panel – singers BP Fallon and Patty Griffin both of whom Mac recorded with, bass-player Jon Notarthomas of Ian McLagan & The Bump Band who played with Mac solo too, KUTX radio personality Jody Denberg, Jo Rae DiMenno who did Mac’s press and David Fricke Senior Editor of Rolling Stone.

Says BP Fallon here – “What is stardom? Stardom is generosity of spirit and the joy of life made contagious and in that context Ian McLagan was as big a star as anyone”.
