No video of this fantastic Top of The Pops performance by Rod and the Faces seem to show the start to the end, so here it is, from the TOTP2 2002 New Years Party special.
The Faces line up:
Rod Stewart (Vocals)
Ronnie Wood (Lead Guitar)
Ronnie Lane (Bass Guitar)
Kenney Jones (Drums)
Ian Mclagan (Organ)
John Peel (Mandolin) (was Ray Jackson on the record)
Rod explained some years later that he and the band had been drinking all day and were playing football in the BBC corridors with Slade! After trying to get into the Pans People changing room they messed around a bit more with the football and Rod said to John Peel 'do the performance with us and bring the footie!'
So here it is, a memorable performance which is top of many peoples list of classic TOTP moments, including Noel Gallaghers.
