Michael Monroe wins at Classic Rock Awards!

by Markku ~ November 10th, 2011. Filed under: News.

Michael Monroe’s album “Sensory Overdrive” won The Best Album of The Year award at the Classic Rock Awards. Other nominees included Foo Fighters, Motörhead and Whitesnake to name few.

The 7th Classic Rock Awards ceremony was hosted by the legendary Gene Simmons at Roundhouse in London. There were Deep Purple, Scorpions, Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, Steel Panther, Jeff Beck, Queen’s Brian May, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Chrissie Hynde and other big stars of the rock world. The award was handed by Duff McKagan who praised the band, saying that Monroe deserves all the world’s attention.

Michael Monroe was happy to be able to attend the ceremony and accept the award himself. After a busy year touring around the world, performing in numerous festivals and television programs, arranging a charity concert for the victims of the catastrophe in Japan and working on his own biography released in October, there is still more to come: a mini tour in the UK is kicking off on the 24th of November from Wolverhampton and the new video of Trick of The Wrist!

    Daamn! This is so unbelievable!! Finally (t)he(y) got some recognition!

    And the new music video, it is truly awesome! The coolest for long time! I didn’t like so much of this “Trick of the wrist” track (what does it mean anyway?) and I assumed Superpowered superfly will be definitely the next single and video.. but now I’m sure they did the right thing. The video is illustrated so well, and the message is clear and the attitude is strong and the whole thing is so rocking piece of work! Daamn I can’t express myself well enough!

  17. Blake

    About time!

  18. Atomic Honey

    So happy you’re finally getting the recognition you’ve deserved for a long time time now. You are truly one of the all-time greats, and the new material is fantastic! I look forward to the day when I can say you are no longer the most underrated rock star of all time! All the best always! Love oxox
