A Beatle and a Beach Boy have both been honoured at a top music awards show.
Ringo Starr picked up the icon award at music magazine Mojo's annual awards, while Brian Wilson was inducted into its Hall of Fame.
Editor-in-chief Phil Alexander said: "Ringo was the backbeat of one of the greatest bands of all-time.
"He's the man who sang With A Little Help From My Friends. He's the only guy to ever visit the Octopus's Garden. The man who directed T Rex's Born to Boogie. Oh, and he's the voice of Thomas The Tank Engine. Teddy boy, mop top, all-star guy. There is and only ever will be one Ringo Starr."
Wilson, who flew in from the United States to collect his award, was leader of the Beach Boys and wrote hits including California Girls and Good Vibrations.
Mr Alexander said: "As one of the principle architects of the Beach Boys sound, Brian sold us visions of America that were infused with romanticism, hope and in places, sheer fragility. You listen to his music and you are transported by what it does. He has a sense of composition that is utterly unique to the point where is almost defies categorisation. Genius is the only word for it."
Gongs were also handed out to synthpop pioneer Gary Numan, who was given the Inspiration Award, and folk-rocker Donovan, who was given the Maverick Award.
Other winners at the awards, formally known as the Glenfiddich Mojo Honours List 2011, included Primal Scream, soul singer Eddie Floyd and Public Image Ltd.
The band, fronted by former Sex Pistol John Lydon, got the award for Outstanding Contribution To Music.
Rumer won the Breakthrough Award but was beaten to Best Album by Arctic Monkeys who won it for their fourth album Suck It And See.
