Iovine honored by P&E Wing

THERE’S AN “I” IN “AUDIO”: The Producers & Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy will celebrate its fifth annual Grammy Week event honoring Jimmy Iovine for “his commitment to excellence and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music.” The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at The Village in West L.A., and Bono and Dr. Dre will serve as honorary event co-chairs. Said Neil Portnow, "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. I’m hoping he’ll comp me a pair of those hip Beats Audio headphones." (12/22a)
