Queen: Classic Rock's Living Legends 2015
“Freddie would have loved it,” says guitarist Brian May as his band scoop the flagship gong at the Classic Rock Awards 2015.
Queen are to receive the Living Legend award at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour 2015.
Forty-five years after the band’s formation in London, they will be honoured at the ceremony on November 11 at The Roundhouse in London, and presented with the award that has previously been claimed by Jimmy Page, Gregg Allman and Black Sabbath.
“Do I feel like a Living Legend?” ponders Brian May. “No. I feel like I’ve been around a long time. I’m just very grateful that people hold us in that kind of esteem. We’ve been doing this a long time, and it’s been a wonderful road. Freddie would have loved winning this award. Although he was never a pleaser of people, he liked to see the effect of his work out there. He would have smiled wickedly and said: ‘I deserve it, darlings…!’”
