Annie Lennox, Trevor Horn, Richard Thompson receive Queen's New Year's Honours
Annie Lennox, Trevor Horn and Richard Thompson have all been named on the Queen's New Year's Honours list.

Lennox, the former lead singer of the Eurythmics, will receive an OBE for her charity work with Oxfam in the fight against AIDS in Africa, reports BBC News.

"As somewhat of a renegade, it either means I've done something terribly right - or they've done something terribly wrong," Lennox said. "In any case, whatever powers-that-be have deemed me worthy of such a recognition, I'm getting my fake leopard pillbox hat dusted and ready."

Meanwhile, Trevor Horn is set to receive a CBE for his services to music. Horn originally formed The Buggles, who famously had the 1979 hit 'Video Killed The Radio Star'.

Since then he has also produced for a number acts including Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Pet Shop Boys, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, ABC, Delays and Robbie Williams.

Also on the list is Richard Thompson, who receives an OBE for his services to music.

Thompson was previously a member of Fairport Convention and has also recorded and toured as a solo performer.
