Trio all set for Buckingham Palace visit
“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’.
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.
