MICHAEL MONROE accepts 'Inspiration' Award at the Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods'
MICHAEL MONROE accepts 'Inspiration' Award at the 12th annual Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods' in London on behalf of Hanoi Rocks
Michael Monroe, one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most iconic frontman, was presented with the coveted ‘Inspiration’ Award at Metal Hammer’s annual ‘Golden Gods’ event, held last night – June 16th – at Indigo (at the O2 Arena) in London; he accepted the Award on behalf of legendary Finnish outfit, Hanoi Rocks.
Monroe first came to fame as frontman of the ground-breaking group, renowned for their strong song-writing, flamboyant image (onstage and off), explosive live performances and punk spirit; over the years, Hanoi Rocks have come to be recognised as a huge influence on the more colourful / abandoned side of rock, with many of the genre’s biggest names citing them as a prime source of inspiration.
It was fitting that Monroe – currently leading his own band of hand-picked players – should be invited to London to collect the Award (“one of the most prestigious of the evening, only given to those whose role in our world will continue to influence for years to come”); not only is original Hanoi Rocks bassist, Sami Yaffa, still a part of Monroe’s live and recording band, but his touring set continues to feature choice moments from the revered Hanoi catalogue…
Monroe: “It’s really nice to know that, we, Hanoi Rocks continue to have a positive impact on the rock’n’roll scene of today. This award is a great honour and truly appreciated. So, on behalf of Razzle, whose great spirit still lives on, Gyp Casino, Nasty Suicide, Andy McCoy, Sami Yaffa and myself - thank you!”
Monroe is currently playing the European festival circuit with his own band, performing extensively throughout the summer. His current album, ‘Horns And Halos’, is available now via Spinefarm Records.
