Ronnie Wood honoured at award ceremony
Electric guitar player Ronnie Wood has been handed a gong at this year's Classic Rock Awards.
The ceremony in London was almost a who's who of the genre, with stars such as Brian May, Slash, Joe Perry and Jimmy Page in attendance.
Wood, who replaced Mick Taylor in The Rolling Stones in the 1970s, was handed the Outstanding Contribution award by Classic Rock magazine.
Speaking to BBC News, the former Faces star revealed that this is his first ever individual honour.
"It means a lot," he commented.
Scott Rowley, editor in chief of Classic Rock, added: "It's nice to end the decade on a high, with the fifth and most star-studded Classic Rock Roll Of Honour."
Other winners at the ceremony included supergroup Chickenfoot, who were named Best New Band by readers of the magazine.
AC/DC also walked away with a gong, as their recent Black Ice LP was voted Album of the Year.Posted on 3 Nov 2009 11:09 to category : Band / Celebrity News
