Queen Handed Another Award
As of late, Queen seems to be the classic rock band of the moment. The group was handed another award over the weekend and they may be headed for a reunion next year.
Brian May said it was wonderful to be there 40 years later, adding that Queen was “there at the birth of MTV.” He also had very positive words about the once violence-stricken area of Northern Ireland where the ceremony was held. May said that Belfast is once again showing its beauty and “setting an example to the world by finding, out of grief and tragedy, the beginnings of truth and peace.”
The group was also honored at the show’s finale with a medley of The Show Must Go On and We Are the Champions.
Grandfather-to-Be Ozzy Osborne and Red Hot Chili Peppers walked away from the awards empty handed Sunday. Ozzy was nominated for Best World Stage, but that award went to 30 Seconds to Mars. RHCP were in the running for Best Live Act and Best Rock Act, but lost out to pop tart Katy Perry and Linkin Park, respectively.
