Dance DJ Brandon Block caused controversy in 2000 after appearing uninvited on stage, expecting an award. Friends had managed to convince the star, who had consumed lots of alcohol, that he had been called up to accept a gong. Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood who was about to present the award with actress Thora Birch, aimed an insult at Block whilst on stage. The DJ retaliated and Wood threw a drink over him.
