The Classic Rock Awards is THE awards event of the year if thats what your into and Alice Cooper has just published named list of nominations for Classic Rock Magazine

They event will be held in London on November 3

Scott Rowley, Classic Rock's Editor In Chief summed up the year so far;:

"What some people don’t realise about classic rock is that it’s still being made, this year’s best new bands are some of the strongest in years, while the albums of the year list sees the return to form of many classic acts.While the rest of the music business tries to get excited about the Ning Nang Nongs and the Rama Lama Ding Dongs, rock has become the most vibrant and vital musical genre."

Ozzy will receive Living Legend gong at 2008 Classic Rock Awards

"I hear I'm a Living Legend, which is something I am grateful for,I couldn't be happier to know that Classic Rock haven't yet written me off!Seriously, it's a great honour and I'm looking forward to going to my first Classic Rock Awards in November, can't wait to see you there."
