NME Awards Winners: Ronnie Wood Takes Home Two Gongs For The Rolling Stones (PICTURES)

Posted: Updated:

Rock veterans the Rolling Stones were double winners at the NME Awards, more than half a century after they first featured in the magazine's pages.

The group - who played a series of 50th anniversary concerts late last year - were named best live band, and their documentary Crossfire Hurricane landed the best film prize.

Chart-topping stars One Direction - who last week picked up a global success prize at the Brit Awards - were named worst band, while singer Harry Styles was declared villain of the year.

Another double winner at the annual bash was Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine who was named best solo artist and she provided the vocals to the track which was named best dancefloor anthem, Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris.

The event, staged at east London venue The Troxy, saw rock trio Biffy Clyro named best British band, while The Killers landed the best international band prize.

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr took NME's "godlike genius" award for his 30 years of music-making which has seen him working with acts such as Modest Mouse, Pet Shop Boys, Talking Heads and The Pretenders.

And The Cribs - for which Marr was briefly guitarist - took the prize for outstanding contribution to music.

Given To The Wild by Maccabees, which was among the nominees for last year's Mercury Prize, took the award for best album.
