(RockAAA) Queen will be named BMI Icons at the organization's annual London Awards, set for October 4 at London's Dorchester Hotel.

The BMI London Awards recognize the U.K. and European songwriters and publishers of the past year's most-performed songs on radio and television in the United States. The performing rights organization collects license fees from businesses that use music, which it distributes as royalties to songwriters, composers & music publishers.

BMI honors songwriters who have had "a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers" as Icons. Queen's Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon join a list of past honorees that includes 2010 recipient Don Black, Van Morrison, Donovan, the Bee Gees, James Brown, Willie Nelson, and more. more on this story
