''Commented Classic Rock magazine publisher Chris Ingham: ''The Classic Rock Roll of Honor is a unique awards show and a chance to honor the real legends of rock, many of whom will not get a Brit Award or an Ivor Novello because they are not seen as being ''hip'' enough or their face doesn't fit.''''
