Classic Rock Roll Of Honour 2011: Monday



The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour is back for its seventh year and is again celebrating another mind-blowing year of rock. There’s been an emergence of bands bringing rock music to a whole new generation. And the old guard are still producing exceptional albums and performing to millions around the world. The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour, in association with Currencies.co.uk, celebrates amazing music, not just trends, and proves that being Classic is nothing to do with age.

Each night this week we are speaking to someone from Classic Rock Magazine about one of the hotly contested categories, which have been voted for by the public.
