Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and Black Sabbath are among the music legends who will be honored at the 2014 edition of the annual O2 Silver Clef Awards , which will take place July 4 in London.  The awards are handed out annually by Nordoff Robbins, a U.K. charity that provides music therapy to ill and disabled people.

Page will be presented with the O2 Silver Clef Award, while Black Sabbath will receive the Ambassadors of Rock prize.

In response to being chosen for his award, Page sends out "[a] big thank you to Nordoff Robbins and everyone involved."

Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne , meanwhile, says the Ambassadors of Rock Award "is a huge honor."  He adds, "Music is our life, and we couldn't live without it.  The world can't survive without music and this is a very special charity that brings music to everyone."

Other artists who will be feted at the Silver Clef Awards include Tom Jones , who will be presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, and famed dance-music Giorgio Moroder , who will receive the Innovation Award.
