"We are proud and honoured to be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Silver Clef Lunch.

"To be receiving this Award from an organisation who have been transforming lives through music for over 50 years makes this an even greater honour."

Status Quo were previously awarded the Silver Clef Award in 1981 and they hold the record for having recorded 64 charting British singles, more than any other single band.
