Much has been said about Rick Rubin‘s illustrious career. From working with Johnny Cash and Jay Z to the Beastie Boys and Tom Petty, the eight-time Grammy winner helped move mountains for many. Now, the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing will be honoring the iconic multi-talented producer.
The annual event, which recognizes behind-the-scenes wizards like Rubin and past recipients including Jimmy Iovine and Quincy Jones, is set for Thursday, Feb. 11 at The Village studios in West Los Angeles.
Those attending the festivities will hear an in-depth retrospective about Rubin’s decades-long career. Speaking on Rubin, The Recording Academy’s President and CEO Neil Portnow had the following to say in a statement:
“Rick Rubin has said he has one rule regarding his recording process, ‘The only rule is that it’s not done until it’s great.’ His contributions to music and to the artists he’s worked with prove that Rick is beyond simply great. He is remarkable. We look forward to celebrating this musical icon and his pioneering career, which continues to inspire and climb to new heights.”
