Queen Elizabeth II met four of Britain’s most famous guitarists Tuesday, asking them: “And what do you do?”

Queen’s Brian May, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck were all guests at a Buckingham Palace party to honor the British music industry.

“It’s great to meet her and it doesn’t matter at all that she did not know who were are or what we do,” Clapton said. “I wouldn’t expect her to.”

Other guests included Charlotte Church, Cilla Black, Shirley Bassey, Roger Daltrey and Geri Halliwell.

Phil Collins, another guest, said it wasn’t the first time he had meet the queen.

“The queen has heard my music but I don’t know if she’s a fan,” Collins said.
