CLEVELAND, OH - APRIL 14: Inductee Ron Wood of Faces performs on stage during the 27th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Public Hall on April 14, 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Ronnie Wood, who celebrates his birthday today (June 1), is perhaps best known for his tenure in The Rolling Stones, but let’s go back to one boisterous performance from The Faces.

The Faces were part of the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction class along with Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, The Crickets and many others.  Among all the inductees that year, The Faces getting the nod, frankly, was long overdue thanks to classics like “Stay With Me.”

While it wasn’t a full reunion due to Rod Stewart falling ill and the passing of Steve Marriott, Wood delivered a blistering guitar performance along with Kenny Jones and the late Ian McLagan, who were also perfection.  Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall more than came through on filling in for Stewart.

The Rock Hall induction ceremonies are known for their killer performances, and this one certainly didn’t disappoint.

The Small Faces / Faces Explosive "Stay With Me" Induction Performance

Hall of Fame Inductee Ian McLagan was among the most prominent unifying threads that linked the Small Faces - a band of mod rockers who embraced soul and psychedelia in the 60s - to the Faces, a rollicking band of roots rockers who took the 70s by storm.
