Annie Lennox and Richard Thompson Get Royal Honors

(Gibson) Queen Elizabeth has released her 2011 New Year's Honors List and included among the ranks of British citizens receiving special merit are singer Annie Lennox, singer-songwriter-guitarist Richard Thompson and producer-performer Trevor Horn. Each musician has been made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), according to Spinner.com.

Thompson and Horn (known to many for his work in The Buggles) were honored for their catalog of musical work. Horn told the Arbroath Herald that he thought the letter that came in the mail was a notice about taxes. "It's not something you ever think about in my line of work because it so enjoyable anyway you don't look for any other rewards," he said.

Lennox was not recognized for her solo work or time with The Eurythmics, but for her charitable efforts. One of her great concerns has been working with Oxfam on AIDS initiatives in Africa. The singer said she was "genuinely honored" on her website. more on this story
