VIDEO: Foo Fighters joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer for Faces classic

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith joined the Foo Fighters for a rendition of The Faces’ 1971 classic, “Stay With Me”, during a July 14 show at The Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY.

“He can’t not play the drums if he comes to our show,” Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins told the crowd before stepping up to handle lead vocals on the track.

“It’s true,” added frontman Dave Grohl. "If he shows up, you’re like, ‘OK, what’s Chad going to do?’”

Written by Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, “Stay With Me” was a hit single from The Faces’ third album, “A Nod's As Good As A Wink... To A Blind Horse”, with the tune reaching No. 17 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 6 on the charts in the band’s native UK.

The Wantagh, NY stop is part of the Foo Fighters’ current North American tour in support of their ninth album, “Concrete And Gold.”

The set debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last fall to deliver the band their second US chart-topper, following 2011’s “Wasting Light.”
