Last night, the winners of the 2006 MOJO Magazine awards were announced, and amongst these was David Gilmour, winning the Lifetime Achievement Award for his solo work, and his work with Pink Floyd.

Mojo Awards
With the award presented to him by Phil "el Magnifico" Manzanera (his friend, next-door neighbour and key part of the On An Island album and tour), David's contribution to the music industry was aptly marked at the ceremony held at Shoreditch Town Hall, in East London. The award was sponsored by Ryko, and chosen by MOJO Magazine.

Other artists recognised last night included Elton John (winning the Hall of Fame award), the late Johnny Cash (Catalogue Release of the year), The Buzzcocks (Inspiration award), Jools Holland (MOJO Medal), Brian May (Les Paul Award for Guitar Playing) and Chrissie Hynde (Songwriter award).

Winner of the Icon award was legendary singer Scott Walker, who made a rare public appearance to accept his award.

Full coverage of the event will be in Mojo Magazine itself soon. As we get details of this, we will let you know.
