Black tie and no hat

Yesterday, June 14, Ian Paice and Roger Glover introduced Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo of Metallica at the Polar Music Prize Awards ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Polar Music Prize is a Swedish international award founded in 1989 by Stig Anderson, manager of ABBA, with a donation to the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. The award is annually given to one contemporary musician and one classical musician. This year the recipients were Metallica and Afghanistan National Institute of Music. It is customary that the recipients are being introduced by their peers, and as you may remember, Jon Lord took the honours in 2006 to introduce Led Zeppelin.

Swedish TV4 broadcast part of the show. TV4 also did an interview with Ian and Roger. They said this was a part of payback to Lars Ulrich and Metallica for introducing Deep Purple at the Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.

One can watch the TV4 broadcast after creating a free (with ads) account at https://www.tv4play.se/program/polar-music-prize/3960051. Use Google translate, ‘coz the website is all in Swedish. The interview with Roger and Ian is right after the second advertising break.

Thanks to our editor emeritus Benny Holmström for the info.
