The Legion Of Honour is the highest award dished out by the French government. Garnier, who remains one of France's most respected and influential DJs, has been recognised for his services to music. He wrote in a Facebook post that he was "deeply touched" by the award, and dedicated it to the people who have "followed, supported and helped" him during his three-decade career.
