CLASSIC ROCK SOCIETY AWARDS 2012
 
Saturday 23rd February saw the annual awards for the CLASSIC ROCK SOCIETY take place in Wath-upon-Dearne at the Montgomery Hall.

Only  members of the CLASSIC ROCK SOCIETY were allowed to vote, and this year more of you than ever before took the time to do so.  Magenta rounded off the Awards evening with another great performance.
