Other top acts to be recognised at the award ceremony, which raised funds for music therapy charity Nordoff-Robins, included Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys.

The star, who played bass guitar in the legendary band and wrote many of their hits, was given the Best International Act gong.

Meanwhile, Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen came away with the Ambassadors of Rock honour, which was awarded to recognise their charity work.

The drummer and electric guitar player have supported organisations such as the Mercury Phoenix Trust and the Nelson Mandela Foundation during their careers, while they famously performed a show-stealing set at Live Aid in 1985.
