Recording Acad to fete Iovine

Interscope-Geffen-A&M chairman to be honored at Grammy Week event

The Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing will honor Interscope-Geffen-A&M chairman Jimmy Iovine at a 2012 Grammy Week event recognizing his commitment to excellence in recorded music.

Iovine began his music biz career as an engineer, working with acts like John Lennon and Bruce Springsteen. He moved into production, helming classic albums by acts including Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Patti Smith and U2. He co-founded Interscope Records in 1990. Iovine is also partnered in the high-end headphone and sound company Beats Electronics with Dr. Dre.

NARAS prexy-CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement: “This year we pay tribute to an industry leader, Jimmy Iovine, who has made an indelible impact as a recording engineer, producer, founder of Interscope Records, and now entrepreneur focused on audio quality. As we continue to highlight those who work ‘behind the glass,’ we are very pleased this year to celebrate someone of Jimmy’s stature who is so dedicated to this important cause.”

P&E Wing fete will take place Feb. 8 at the Village Recording Studios in West L.A. Bono and Dr. Dre are serving as honorary event co-chairs.
