The MY GENERATION singer agreed to attend the ceremony at London's Buckingham Palace where he was awarded the honour for his services to music and charity - but is still a fierce critic of the British Establishment.
He says, "I don't think the Queen's a rock and roll fan.
"She'd probably fall off her podium if she heard The Who's songs. A good blast of My Generation would go down quite well now.
"I still have criticisms of the Establishment but the Queen is an exceptional woman."10/02/2005 14:15
