Rock stars ruled GQ’s Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday as U2 and Keith Richards picked up top honors at the glitzy ceremony in London.
Less than two months after wrapping their record-breaking 360 Tour, the Irish rockers were named Band of the Year at the annual bash, which recognizes the most influential men in the public eye.

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp handed Rolling Stones legend Richards the Writer of the Year prize for his autobiography, Life.

Other big winners included The Hangover star Bradley Cooper (International Man of the Year), actor-turned-blues singer Hugh Laurie (Musician of the Year) and rapper Tinie Tempah (Solo Artist of the Year).

Eighties band Duran Duran accepted the Lifetime Achievement accolade, while Dutch supermodel Lara Stone was the only female to be feted – she was named Woman of the Year.
