    Mani hits the nail on the head.

    A further 16 honorary prizes were handed out. They included the classic album award, which went to The Stone Roses for their 1989 self-titled debut LP.

    Bassist Mani, who picked up the trophy, said it was "gratefully received".
    Asked why there were few new guitar bands making a splash in the way The Stone Roses did, Mani replied: "Bands of my era had a whacked out agenda. They walked it, they lived it, they breathed it.

    "[They were] not necessarily the best musicians in the world. I think what's wrong with British music at the moment is people are too career-orientated. They're afraid, or record companies will not allow them to take risks, and that just makes everything so uniform."

    True. The only band with anything about them in the UK are Muse. Kula Shaker were good 10 years ago.

    Arctic Monkeys... a non commercial agenda that got commercially hi-jacked, still think their debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not is great.. but that was 2006.

    Arctic Monkeys are heralded as one of the first acts to come to the public attention via the Internet (fan-based sites rather than from the band), with commentators suggesting they represented the possibility of a change in the way in which new bands are promoted and marketed
    yeah, so much for that hope..

    Radiohead singer Thom Yorke has told aspiring musicians to avoid the "sinking ship" of major record labels.

    Giving advice to young artists in a new school textbook, he said: "When the corporate industry dies it will be no great loss to the world.
    "So, I guess I would say, don't tie yourself to the sinking ship because, believe me, it's sinking."

    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do
