More to the point, why the hell has Pete Townshend been ignored?

Regardless of the publicity surrounding the "case" against him, his work supporting young musicians, drink & drug rehabilitation charities and cancer charities as well as the outstanding contribution he has mede to Rock and Pop music is far and above that of Elton John and Mick Jagger.

Agreed, on all of those points.

I think no one should by knighted unless they wear a suit of armor, carry a sword, and go around slaying dragons.

Roger was awarded it because of his amazing efforts towards raising the profile of The Teenage Cancer Trust and the massive amount of money he has arranged through the Albert Hall concerts staged over the last 5 years.

He collects his award tomorrow.

Before you know it, he'll be running around banging coconut shells together and shouting "Neee".

I already call him Sir Brian. I don't think he needs to go to any ceremony.

Perhaps we should consider Brian's efforts.

Organized the Mercury Phoenix Trust Fund
Participated in Live Aid
Organized Tribute Concert for AIDS awareness, and combined with Bohemian Rhapsody's rerelease and Somebody to Love with George Michael (both of which have eanred more than one million British pounds) has raised millions and millions of pounds toward AIDS research.
Helped organize (with Bono and Nelson Mandela) the 46664 concerts.
Has used his capital to help further education and raise awareness about the importance of studying our solar system (and it truly is important)

Need I go on?

Yes! He should absolutely get the title, and also Roger and John! Think, Sir Dr. Brian May... Thats a heavy title for a guitar player! :)

Yes. Giving titles is stupid. Doctor is a certainly stupid one. Still I wouldn't mind being Duke or Earl..or Bishop or Rook.

The thing is, they always wait until the really great one is dead. Like in the Beatles, John Lennon gets shot and Paul McCartney cops the knighthood. Our luck will be that the 3 interesting members of Queen will cark it, and John Deacon will get knighted.

Typical.
