Did anybody find this little snippet from Brian May's site and think "Huh?"

The winner of the Second Freddie Mercury Lifetime Achievement Award, presented at the 2007 Vodofone Live Music Awards Ceremony tonight at Brompton Hall, Earls Court, London, is.....


IGGY POP



Why not give it to Sid Vicious? Has this already became a "spare" award? Who makes the decision?

Artist who's name or band begins with an "I"? Maybe that was the criteria.

See
Iron Maiden
INXS
Infectious Grooves
Billy Idol

Ok, maybe Iggy was the best choice.

If one is to win an award; one should show gratification for winning it.

are some people only bothered he didnt turn up because the award has Freddie's name attached to it?

if so, that's extremely sad..almost pathetic...it's tradition for many to not turn up to collect awards....

Brenski:

I am bothered that The Who was the first receipient. Great choice. But to put Iggy Pop in that group?

And about collecting awards...
I think the only Van Halens that I will ever pay money to again are the ones who collected their R&R HOF award.
