QUEEN will be honored with the "Living Legend Award" at the 11th annual Classic Rock magazine awards — the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour — set to take place on November 11 at The Roundhouse in Camden, London.
The prize will pay tribute to QUEEN's long-lasting legacy in rock music.
Classic Rock editor Siân Llewellyn commented: "I don't think there could be a more perfect year for us to honour QUEEN with the Roll Of Honour's headline award.
"Almost four decades to the day that one of rock's defining songs made its phenomenal presence known, we get to celebrate the incredible, unparalleled career of the band that made it and who changed the world’s soundscape forever."
Previous "Living Legend Award" recipients include Gregg Allman, ZZ TOP, Jeff Beck, RUSH, Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper and Lemmy.
This year's Classic Rock Roll Of Honour will be hosted by Chris Jericho. Voting in the publicly voted categories ("Best New Band", plus "Band"," Album", "Film" and "Reissue" of the year) is open until October 27.
QUEEN members Brian May and Roger Taylor, along with "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert — who has been singing for QUEEN on their tours, filling in for his idol Freddie Mercury — recently completed a South American run of dates.
