The 2020 Brit Awards were an evening filled with fiery performances, from Lizzo and Stormzy to Harry Styles and Billie Eilish, the young pop icons made it a night to remember; but it was British rock elder statesman, Sir Rod Stewart who stole the show with a grandiose finale performance, flanked by chandeliers and a massive orchestra. 

Rod opened with a rendition of his 1975 tearjerker, "I Don't Want to Talk About It" which was originally recorded by Neil Young affiliates, Crazy Horse. Before announcing that, “[The BRITs] maybe 40 years old, but the Faces are 50 years old,” he said. “There used to be five of us, and now there's three," as Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones joined him on stage for a very special 50th-anniversary performance of “Stay With Me”, merging the track’s mean-as-hell guitar licks and Rod’s show-stealing dance moves with the opulent orchestral accompaniment. The track has dropped as an audio track and video track, available to Amazon only.

Here’s a flashback to Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Bill Wyman closing out the Brit Awards with a bluesy rendition of “Stay with Me”, back in 1993.

British mod-rock pioneers, Faces formed out of the ashes of the Small Faces in 1969. Former members of the Jeff Beck Band, Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, teamed up with Small Faces members Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan and Ronnie Lane. The band and released four studio LPs, their best-known include 1971’s A Nod Is As Good As a Wink… to a Blind Horse and 1973’s Ooh La La. Listen to Faces on Spotify:
