Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Lead Classic Rock Roll Of Honour Awards

Veteran rockers Black Sabbath look set to dominate the Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards after landing a slew of top nominations and a career achievement prize.

Ozzy Osbourne's band will be feted with the Living Legend award, which the singer previously won as a solo artist in 2008, while their chart-topping record 13 will compete in the Album of the Year category.

They have also been nominated for the Band of the Year honour and Event of the Year for scoring such a huge hit with 13.

The record will go up against tough competition from 11 others in the Album of the Year category, including David Bowie's comeback The Next Day and ...Like Clockwork by Queens of the Stone Age.

The title of Band of the Year will also be fought out with Bowie, along with other acts including Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones and Status Quo.

Black Sabbath follow in the footsteps of other Classic Rock Living Legends such as Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper and ZZ Top.

Osbourne says of the award, "It's good to be a living legend. It's better than being a dead one."

The prizes will be handed out during a ceremony at London's Roundhouse venue on 14 November (13).
