I love Classic Rock Awards nights !


Due to circumstances, Roger and I had to split our attentions these last few days … there’s a lot going on.

So Roger attended the Q Awards last week, (and did a nice presentation to the brilliant David Mallet) – and I got to do the Classic Rock awards.

I was honoured to accept the award of “Living Legends”. And I think my acceptance speech is up online somewhere…

Now, as usual, there were countless photographs of the ceremony, and me, and the wonderful Joe Satriani, and the award itself. But where are they ?

We’ll try to chase some up.

But my lovely daughter Emily took this photo of me during my acceptance address to the assembled throng. I was actually very touched by Joe’s words and the fact that everybody stood up when I took to the stage. Got very choked.

That’s Joe Satriani to the right, and on the left is presenter Steve – a well-known wrestler and musician – who did a very good job, and managed to stay sober enough the whole night to make sense … a feat not always achieved by CR presenters !! ha ha !

I got to see some old friends … Lemmy and Phil from Motorhead, the guys from Europe, Alice Cooper, and many others.

Thanks to everyone who had a hand in us being presented with this great award ! We will try to live up to it !
