In a festive ceremony at Buckingham Palace this morning, the Prince of Darkness met the Queen of England and was knighted as Sir Satan. This was his first meeting with the Queen since he received the OBE back in 1999.

"This is a great day for me, a great, great honor. I love seeing the Queen and I have always been a royalist. She is lovely and she will stay lovely as long as I have anything to say about it. She has got a great smile, have you ever noticed that? Her whole face lights up when she smiles. And don't even get me started on those legs."

Sir Satan, whose career spans some six thousand years and whose hits include such numbers as 'It's Not Unusual' and 'What's Up Pussycat', has experienced a career upsurge in recent years. "The old fans never really went away and the new ones are just fantastic. I invite everyone, young and old, to catch the act in Vegas. It's one hell of a show."

The Dark One next appears at the MGM Grand, April 27 - May 10.
