Lostprophets 'honoured' with Kerrang! award
Lostprophets and Biffy Clyro were among the winners at the Relentless Energy Drink Kerrang! Awards last night (29.07.10).
The Welsh metal band's guitarist Mike Lewis admitted the group were "humbled" after winning the Classic Songwriter accolade and joked they may as well split up now they've reached the "pinnacle" of their careers.
He told BANG Showbiz: "It's a cool award to win so we feel very humbled and very honoured. Now we're going to split up! We've won this so we've reached the pinnacle of our careers. It's what we've been waiting for our whole careers.
"But seriously we're just going to carry on doing what we're doing. Onwards and upwards!"
Despite the win, Mike insisted he and his Lostprophets bandmates weren't going to be partying hard to celebrate.
He said: "We're jet-lagged out of our a***s so it's not going to be a massive one."
However, frontman Ian Watkins seemed to have other ideas.
He revealed: "I'll be celebrating in a pretty jovial manner - a bit dangerous, but still within health and safety guidelines. Dancing on the tables, setting fire to things, you know the score. I'd like to win an Oscar now."
Biffy Clyro took home the Best Video trophy for the promo for 'The Captain'.
Among the other winners were Bullet For My Valentine - who picked up two gongs, for Best Live Band and Best British Band - and metal group Motley Crue, who were presented with the Kerrang! Hall Of Fame Award.
The ceremony took place at London's The Brewery venue and was hosted by Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor and Scott Ian from Anthrax.
Former Black Sabbath singer Ronnie James Dio - who died in May - was posthumously given The Kerrang! Icon Award.
