Rock & Roll Hall of Fame keyboardist Ian McLagan died Wednesday after suffering a stroke in Austin. He was 69.

A member of Small Faces and Faces, McLagan was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

“He was a beloved friend to so many people and a true rock n roll spirit. His persona and gift of song impacted the music across oceans and generations,” his manager Ken Kushnick said in a statement on McLagan's website.

McLagan had been scheduled to begin a North American tour opening for Nick Lowe on Wednesday.

McLagan played on the Rolling Stones’ 1978 album “Some Girls.”

He also performed with Lucinda Williams, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen.

McLagan joined Small Faces in 1965 and remained with the band after lead singer Steve Marriott left in 1969. The band reformed around Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, dropping the "Small" from its name.

“I am completely devastated by this shocking news and I know this goes for Ronnie (Wood) and Rod (Stewart) also,” bandmate Kenney Jones said in a statement on McLagan’s website.

Twitter users remembered McLagan.
