    For services to music mate...although I think you're expected to do charity work etc.

    In fairness Helena Bonham Carter and Lorraine Kelly both got CBE's which is two awards higher up than Rodi's and I know who I think has done more for our culture. Also the Queen used to dish them out mostly to the nobility and politicians so at least she's spreading them round a bit more.
