Rick Rubin to Receive Grammy Week Honor From Producers and Engineers Wing

The Recording Academy’s Producers and Engineers Wing will honor Rick Rubin during its annual Grammy Week event next year, the Academy announced on Wednesday.

Taking place shortly before the 58th Grammy Awards on Feb. 11, 2016, the event will be the ninth of its kind, held at the Village Studios in West Hollywood.

An eight-time Grammy winner, Rubin co-founded Def Jam Records with Russell Simmons when he was still a college student, and went on to produce for artists as varied as Adele, Slayer, Johnny Cash, Jay Z, the Beastie Boys, Tom Petty, the Dixie Chicks and Metallica. His Grammys include two producer of the year honors, and another two for album of the year.

As Recording Academy prexy Neil Portnow noted in a statement, “His contributions to music and to the artists he’s worked with prove that Rick is beyond simply great. He is remarkable.”

Previous Producers and Engineers Wing honorees include Neil Young, Quincy Jones, Jimmy Iovine and Al Schmitt.
