Nothing to see here. Just a bunch of rock stars hanging out.

More Jimmy Page. 🙂

Winners for the public vote awards

The categories featured below are the public vote awards. Here’s the full list of winners.

Best New Band

This is the most interesting category to me. I get so tired of people saying rock is dead. Everyone knows that guy who is always whining that there’s no good rock music anymore. It’s the same guy whose music library stops somewhere around 1975. The “music was better before” guy. Shit, even the Grammys are stuck in the past. So for all those people, this category is for you. Listen and then tell me there isn’t any new good music you lazy asshole.

This playlist includes all the nominees, 12 in all. We Are Harlot won. No matter. All the nominees got to hobnob with rock legends for an evening. Not bad for any band getting started.

Album of the year

Iron Maiden, The Book Of Souls

Reissue Of The Year

Jimmy accepting the award for the Led Zeppelin reissues.

A red carpet chat with Jimmy Page and Lemmy. The Lemmy bit is priceless.

Film (or DVD) Of The Year

Foo Fighters Sonic Highways (HBO)

Band Of The Year

AC/DC. Can’t disagree with that. They certainly deserve it given their massive world tour which will wrap up on December 15 in Auckland, New Zealand.


Watch the ceremony.


Next year, destination Toyko. Check out the official website.
