Rock star Ozzy Osbourne has won the icon gong at the Mojo magazine awards at The Brewery in London.

"There are icons and there is Ozzy Osbourne. Long may he continue to reign," said Mojo chief editor Phil Alexander, who hosted the event.

Singer Amy Winehouse, who was nominated for three awards, won song of the year for her top 10 track, Rehab.

The awards dedicated to celebrating the greatest names in modern music, were voted for by readers of Mojo magazine.

'Rocker and hero'

The lifetime achievement gong was awarded to The Stooges and Ike Turner scooped the prize for best legend.

Winehouse was beaten to best album by The Good, The Bad and The Queen, released by the unnamed alternative rock band fronted by Damon Albarn.

Canadian indie-rockers Arcade Fire won the coveted best live act category beating the Arctic Monkeys and Winehouse.

One-man band Seasick Steve beat The View to take the breakthrough act, which was won last year by Corinne Bailey Rae.

Alice Cooper, who was described as a "gentleman, a rocker and our hero" by Alexander, was honoured with the hero award.

Following in the footsteps of last year's winner Sir Elton John, American rock band The Doors were welcomed into the Mojo Hall Of Fame.

Members of the Marley family attended the ceremony to collect the classic album award on behalf of the late Bob Marley for his album Exodus.

Other winners included Joy Division for their outstanding contribution to music, while Bjork took home the prestigious inspiration award. Suicide picked up the innovation in sound gong.
