Description: On the 8th September 2007 a commemorative plaque was unveiled here dedicated to Don Arden and Small Faces was unveiled at 52-55 Carnaby Street, Arden's former offices.
Kenney Jones ex-drummer of Small Faces said To honour the Small Faces after all these years is a terrific achievement. I only wish that Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane and the late Don Arden were here to enjoy this moment with me.
Arden died in July aged 81 after developing Alzheimer's disease.
The Small Faces are best known for the hit single Itchycoo Park.
