When Rod Stewart And Ronnie Wood were Faces
Updated: Dec 5, 2018
In 1969 members of the British pop band Small Faces formed a rock band simply called Faces. Adding to the line-up of former Small Faces alumni Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane, and Kenney Jones were newcomers Rod Stewart and future Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood. The band released four albums and Stewart soon became lead singer on most songs and co-writer with Wood on many others.
In 1971 Faces released the Stewart/Wood single ‘Stay With Me’ off their album A Nod Is As Good As A Wink…To A Blind Horse. It reached #4 in Canada, #6 in the UK and #19 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart. In 1972 Faces performed this song on an unknown TV show. Above is the video of that performance. Enjoy!
