    People who are not UK citizens cannot be knighted, as I understand it.

    I think there may be some sort of alternative or Honorary thing.

    Bob Geldof got one for his whole Band Aid / Live Aid thing.

    I wonder if the queen nighted those paparazzis that went on trial in France for contributing to Diana&#39;s death, it&#39;s night like they sat around snorted coke for 35 years like Mic & Elton.

    Unlike Blair&#39;s Congressional Medal of Honor, Gates can&#39;t be properly knighted - That is reserved for those of British background (i.e. British natives).

    But he can get an honorary knighthood. If I remember, someone else got one a few years back - It was on the news a lot that night. I think it might have been at the British Embassy in New York?

    Nothing against Sirs Mick, Elton, Paul, et. al., but I think Keith Richard had a point about Mick.

    If Mick is good for a Knighting, why not Keith?

    Is it because of Mick&#39;s sterling character?

    On the whole, if the Brits are going to go to the trouble of stipulating native-born status, I&#39;d rather they just Knighted those genuinely deserving of it; Bill Gates be damned (nothing at all against Mr. Gates).

    Again-the lads are tops, but Knighting?

    Puhleeeeeze.
