Hounoured rockers

As if it wasn't enough that Led Zep frontman Robert Plant was named in the New Year's Honour's List (the ol' crooner is to get a CBE) it now emerges that the Scottish Parliament may about to raise the horns and salute AC/DC.

For those that don't know, the Young Brothers and the late, great Bon Scott, originally hailed from Scotland, hence MSP (that's Member of the Scottish Parliament for the politically challenged readers...) Christine Grahame has lodged a motion in the Holyrood Parliament for the achievements of AC/DC to be recognised.

As Northern Irish politicians return from their Christmas break they should have a list ready at their fingertips to recognise Sweet Savage, Stiff Little Fingers, Therapy?, Ash, The Answer, The Undertones...and a bunch more! They'll probably nominate someone who is about the same age as themselves...Van Morrison!
