Noel Gallagher Wins Q Icon Award

Noel Gallagher has won the Q Icon award at the Q Awards 2011, that took place this afternoon.

Speaking before the show, the elder Gallagher brother played down the success of his debut solo album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, which topped the UK chart on Sunday.

"I've got to say, the football overshadowed everything yesterday," he said, in reference to Manchester City's 6-1 victory over rivals Manchester United.

His acceptance speech was similarly self-effacing: "I've had a lot of awards over the years but this is the most recent".

The awards at London's Grosvenor House Hotel also saw rock legends Queen given the hall of fame award, in a year which marks the band's 40th anniversary.

Pictures of Noel and his wife Sara can be found here and here.

he will obviously never win the Q Award for Best Frontman of All Time that Liam won... and Liam is much more an icon.

But Noel has been the brains of Oasis. As this album goes to show, the true talent. Liam had a graet voice and I stress had where as Noel has just got better and this new album, although different from Oasis, is still classic Noel and goes to show why in my opinion is better than Liam! Well done Noel for showing that brains are better than brawn! :) Great album
