NME Awards 2015: Alex Turner won Hero of the Year

                 

Kasabian and Jamie T were the big winners at the NME Awards.

The ceremony – officially called the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas – were staged at the O2 Academy Brixton, with Kasabian being hailed at the event, after not receiving a single Brits nomination.Two of the night’s biggest awards, “Best British Band” and “Best Album” went to Kasabian, who released their fifth studio album, 48:13 last year.

It was a good night for comebacks either, with London singer-songwriter Jamie T winning “Music Moment of the Year” for his triumphant 2014 return. His single “Zombie” was awarded “Best Track” and “Best Video”. NME editor Mike Williams said: “From massive comebacks to huge breakthroughs – the fact that Kasabian, Royal Blood and Jamie T are leading the way shows what an outstanding year it’s been for British rock music.”

The ceremony also saw Royal Blood presented Jimmy Page – the Led Zeppelin guitarist and a fan of the duo, with a special “Rock‘n’Roll Soul Award”. In the acceptance speach Jimmy said: “Well, well, well… Thank you to Royal Blood. They said it’s an honour to be giving this award but it’s an honour for me. I trust so much in Royal Blood. Thanks so much for this award, NME. It’s a real honour to get it, [but] as far as whatever I’ve managed to do in music, I’ve learned from records and my heroes. I’m only just passing on the baton. I got the music and passed it on. There it is, for everyone.”

Arctic Monkeys bring back home one award, by the hand of their leader Alex Turner, who won the “Hero of the Year” for the second year running.
