The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour once again exceeded all expectations. The ceremony was hosted by multi-platinum Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Sammy Hagar. He was joined by a multitude of illustrious guest presenters including Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), musician, writer and actor Henry Rollins, Eric Idle (Monty Python) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) who presented awards to some of rock’s biggest stars including The Doors, Queen + Adam Lambert, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Wilco & Roger Daltrey, Joe Perry and Jeff Lynne among others. The night was capped off by Gregg Allman, one of rock's most acclaimed and beloved icons, receiving this year’s Living Legend Award. Previous winners of the Living Legend Award include: Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper, Jimmy Page, Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop and ZZ Top. The night was also highlighted by a stellar line-up of live performances from some of the most exciting and respected artists in rock: Kings Of Chaos, California Breed, Rival Sons and Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts.
Classic Rock editor Siân Llewellyn says: “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. Only at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour could you glance around and see the likes of Gregg Allman, Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Lynne, Queen and The Doors, to name but a handful. Roll on next year…”
