THE Velvet Underground star John Cale paid a touching tribute to his late mum as he was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in London on Friday (19Nov10).
The British rocker, a founding member of the influential American band, was handed the prestigious medal by Charles, Prince of Wales in recognition of his services to music over four decades.
Cale, who arrived at the ceremony at Buckingham Palace with his hair dyed bright pink and blue, admitted it felt "strange" to receive the honour but insisted it would have made his Welsh mum Margaret very happy.
He said, "My mother would be very proud if she were alive today."

What you all are doing is imbecile. It is a job, a huge responsibility to be who you're waiting to be. Not a congeniality award contest' who's to be who under the present monarchy. Why is it that when we are in such a mess on the Globe it turns out to be a fad to fade get it solid and get to work ,it is already past to late . Hard work with every humans input it can change for the better, this is poor ad work . Organize the rich and get it done we can not get this civilization fixed without you. Sorry to sound grumpy but next would sound alot worse.
