Manics celebrate with classic award

Manic Street Preachers have been rewarded with the title of "classic songwriters" at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour awards.

The Welsh trio - whose hits include Motorcycle Emptiness and If You Tolerate This, Your Children Will Be Next - are celebrating their 25th year this year.

Also among the winners tonight was guitarist Jeff Beck who was collecting a "living legend" award for his lifetime achievements.

The virtuoso player, who has led his own band for many years as well as being a member of the Yardbirds, joins previous winners such as Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne.

The Orange Amplification Classic Rock Roll Of Honour also recognised a string of luminaries including Steve Winwood who picked up the "maestro" award. He is known around the world for his years in Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group as well as being a star in his own right with hits such as Valerie and Higher Love.

Former Pink Floyd star Roger Waters won the event of the year award for staging his live shows of the band's album The Wall.

Heavy rock pioneers Deep Purple took the "innovator" award while Jethro Tull were honoured for their contribution to prog rock.

Late Small Faces and Humble Pie frontman Steve Marriott was given the inspiration award for the influence on British singers.

And US record producer Bob Ezrin - who has worked with acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Lou Reed and Rod Stewart - was given the outstanding contribution prize at the event, staged by Classic Rock magazine.

Readers voted Foo Fighters to the title of band of the year, while The Who's Quadrophenia was given the classic album award at the awards bash hosted by Kiss frontman Gene Simmons at the Roundhouse in London.
