Sir Rod, 75, and 72-year-old Ronnie teamed up with their old drummer Kenney Jones for a one-off reunion to close the Brit Awards last month.
The band – including late members bassist Ronnie Lane and keyboard player Ian McLagan – shot to fame nearly half a century ago with hits such as Stay With Me, Ooh La La and Cindy Incidentally before splitting in 1975.

Loose Women star Penny said: “Us wives are trying to get the boys back together. There’s nothing like them.”

“Jack — I’m gonna do this one for your mum, Hilary,” Stewart said, nodding to Brit Awards host Jack Whitehall’s mother, whom Whitehall joked was “throwing herself” at Rod earlier in the night. The song in question was the 1975 weeper “I Don’t Want to Talk About It,” originally a song recorded by Neil Young affiliates Crazy Horse.
“This show may be 40 years old, but the Faces are 50 years old,” Stewart said, referring to the bluesy hard rock outfit that formed out of Small Faces decades ago in the U.K. “There used to be five of us, and now there’s three,” he said, before inviting out the fellow two surviving members — Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones — for a little reunion-
Three remaining members of rock band The Faces, regroup to finish off Tuesday evening’s show. Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones took to the stage at the end of the night following a solo performance from Rod, to end the show with a bang and it’s safe to say fans were loving it.
The Faces delivered their scuzzy booze-blues classic “Stay With Me” with some orchestral backup, but it was the mean-as-hell guitar licks and even some dance moves from Rod that stole the finale.
