Oasis took home the top prize at the prestigious O2 Silver Clef awards in London.

Noel Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell -- singer Liam Gallagher was notable by his absence -- picked up the prestigious Silver Clef award Friday (July 4) at the Hilton hotel ceremony, which benefits Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.

Presented with the gong by boxer Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton, Noel Gallagher quipped that he would be taking Hatton as "personal security on my forthcoming peace mission to Brooklyn" -- a reference to his recent media spat with Jay-Z over the hip-hop star's suitability for the Glastonbury headline slot.

Meanwhile, pop star Lily Allen handed over the icon award to legendary English band Squeeze -- quipping that it was like "someone off [U.K. teen soap] 'Hollyoaks' presenting an award to Robert de Niro."

Other winners at the ceremony included Bryan Adams, who picked up the "ambassador of rock" gong, Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald (HMV newcomer of the year), the Fratellis (best British band) and violinist Nicola Benedetti (PPL classical award).

Meat Loaf picked up his international award via video message, as did Estelle, who won download of the year for her U.K. No. 1 "American Boy."

Organisers say the accompanying auction and raffle raised over £400,000 ($793,000) for Nordoff-Robbins.
