Led Zeppelin Win Outstanding Achievement Gong At Gq Awards

by | 03 September 2008

Led Zeppelin have been awarded an outstanding achievement prize at the GQ Men of the Year awards.

The legendary rockers reformed for a one-off concert at London's O2 Arena last December, with more than one million people applying for tickets to the charity gig.

Producer Mark Ronson was named the maverick of the year while Primal Scream and the Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers took the best band and most stylish man awards, respectively.

Other winners at the ceremony, hosted by Sir Elton John and Lily Allen, included actor Josh Brolin - soon to be seen as president George Bush in W - Gavin and Stacey star James Corden and London mayor Boris Johnson, who was named politician of the year.

Sir Elton and Allen drank wine throughout the ceremony, with the former joking: "What, are you going to have another drink?" after his presenting partner had announced that a "very special point in the evening" had been reached.

TV chef Gordon Ramsay was named entrepreneur of the year while Manchester United and England footballer Rio Ferdinand won the magazine's editor's special award.
