Paul Weller presents Bobby Gillespie with GQ Lifetime Achievement Award


It’s been a big year for Bobby Gillespie; his classic Primal Scream anthem was appropriated by Lorde, there’s been new releases and anniversaries aplenty, and now he has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from GQ. 

A star-studded red carpet was gathered at the event in London for the event with the likes of Maya Jama and Ed Sheeran in attendance all kitted out in the most dazzling pieces they could fetch. 

Joining Gillespie on the winner’s list was GQ Band of the Year: Wolf Alice, GQ Icon: Sacha Baron Cohen, GQ Inspiration of the Year: Gareth Southgate and GQ Writer of the Year: Quentin Tarantino

Gillespie was presented the award by the always smartly sartorial Paul Weller, whose Twitter announced: “Last night at the GQ Awards Paul presented long time friend Bobby Gillespie with the ‘Outstanding Contribution’ award. Congratulations Bobby.”

The duo’s relationship goes back many years having previously worked together on tracks like ‘Losing Boy’ and ‘Big Brass Buttons’ as well as joining forces to save independent music stores with a #loverecordstores campaign last year.
