Q Awards

The Q Awards took place today in London’s Grosvenor Hotel. It was full of todays best musicians from the Arctic Monkeys to Damon Albarn. What ticked me off was the number of lifetime achievement awards and the idol and icon awards. The readers of the magazine chose Arctic Monkeys as the Best Act in the World Today. There were about 11 awards dedicated to many musicians of different styles for their achievements. One of my favorite musicians Damon Albarn won the Q Inspiration Award.
