Blur frontman DAMON ALBARN slammed organisers of Wednesday's (16NOV05) UK Music Hall Of Fame for allowing British Prime Minister Tony Blair to make a tribute to THE EURYTHMICS.

The Gorillaz mastermind, who is an outspoken critic of the British government, was furious when Blair made a surprise contribution to the ceremony to honour duo Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart for inspiring the start of his political career.

Albarn blasted, "Call me old fashioned, but who on earth invited Tony Blair here tonight?"
