Every Musician Who Was Knighted By Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II wasn't exactly what we would refer to as "hip." Born in 1926, Elizabeth came of age during World War II and by the time the Beatles were storming England she was busy reigning over the United Kingdom. She didn't have time to take part in pop culture, but that's okay because she had people to keep her up to date with the who/what/when/where/why of the artists of the era.

By the time Groovy era artists were reaching a respectable age in the late '90s she was able to score a couple of cool points by knighting some of the biggest artists of the '60s and '70s.
