Hosted by U.K.-based CLASSIC ROCK magazine, the 10th annual CLASSIC ROCK AWARDS -- the CLASSIC ROCK ROLL OF HONOUR presented by ORANGE AMPLIFICATION -- celebrated some of the most influential and respected musicians in rock at THE AVALON in HOLLYWOOD last night.
A packed house of icons, innovators and straight-up legends attended the event and were honored with one of the most prestigious awards of the genre. The CLASSIC ROCK ROLL OF HONOUR awards show will officially premiere SUNDAY, DECEMBER 28th at 9p (ET) on AXS TV.
The milestone event marked the 10th anniversary of the awards and the first time they’ve been hosted outside of LONDON. The ceremony was hosted by multi-Patinum ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME inductee SAMMY HAGAR, joined by guest presenters including ZZ TOP's BILLY GIBBONS, DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOT, HENRY ROLLINS, ERIC IDLE and ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN, who handed out awards to THE DOORS, QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT, OZZY OSBOURNE, METALLICA, WILCO and ROGER DALTREY, JOE PERRY and JEFF LYNNE, among others.
The night was capped off by GREGG ALLMAN receiving this year’s LIVING LEGEND AWARD. There was also a stellar lineup of live performances from KINGS OF CHAOS, CALIFORNIA BREED, RIVAL SONS and SCOTT WEILAND & THE WILDABOUTS.
CLASSIC ROCK Editor SIAN LLEWELLYN said: “What a night! I’d heard rumours that HOLLYWOOD was one of the best places for a party, and this evening proved those rumours true. The past, present and future of high-voltage rock ’n’ roll came out to celebrate the music that has soundtracked all of our lives. Roll on next year…”
