Thank you for not mentioning how your mojo is working

Did you know Classic Rock magazine does its own awards? We're not quite sure if the readers voted this year, or if they voted back in 1973 and they just took forever to count them, but the results would probably have been the same. Here's the winners in full, with a taste of the magazine's all-too-imitable style:

Best New Band – ROADSTAR. Award collected by Roadstar, natch.

Best Reissue – QUEEN for A Night At The Opera. Award collected by Queen manager Jim Beach.

DVD Of The Year – WHITESNAKE’s Live… In The Still Of The Night. Award collected by no less a person than Mr David Coverdale himself!

Event Of The Year – The return of the MONSTERS OF ROCK festival. Award collected by Danny Bowes and Luke Morley from Thunder and Steve Homer from Live Nation.

Comeback Of The Year – THE NEW YORK DOLLS. The Dolls couldn’t be there, but they supplied us with a special thank-you film direct from, er, New York.

Band Of The Year – WHITESNAKE. Award collected by that man Cov again!

Classic Album – DEF LEPPARD’s Hysteria. Award collected by Ian Hunter on behalf of the Leps, who supplied us with a special thank-you film direct from the States where they are currently touring.

Metal Guru Award – RONNIE JAMES DIO. Award collected by The Man On The Silver Mountain himself.

Album Of The Year – IRON MAIDEN for A Matter Of Life And Death. Award collected by Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith.

That's him, you know, Vincent Furnier is Alice Cooper. Oh, how they laughed and laughed.

The ceremony was held at the Langham Hotel in London, and contrary to appearances, there were some women at the event. Well, near the event.
