CLASSIC ROCK ROLL OF HONOUR: 2010 Nominees Announced

AC/DC, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, KISS and SLASH are among the nominees at this year's Classic Rock Roll Of Honour.

The ceremony — held by Classic Rock magazine and hosted by legendary rocker Alice Cooper — will take place on Wednesday, November 10 at London, England's Roundhouse venue.

Commented Classic Rock editor-in-chief Scott Rowley: "Capping off a year that saw Classic Rock explore exciting new formats with the release of the Slash album, the launch of our own festival with partners MAMA Group called High Voltage, and the continued success of the magazine as well as our sister magazine Prog, this year's move to the Roundhouse — with the Right Reverend Alice Cooper as ringmaster — shows Classic Rock's commitment to aiming high and doing things differently."
