The backstage winner’s room at the NME Awards with Austin, Texas is the place everyone wants to be. It’s where musical royalty mingle and hang out – a place which brings together a combination of artists rarely seen together. This year, Kasabian took the time to sketch NME staffers, Florence laughed it up with Jamie T and everyone from Run The Jewels to James Dean Bradfield wanted their moment to bask in the presence of Jimmy Page and exclaim: ‘We are not worthy!’
