Renowned producer Phil Ramone was awarded the first Lexicon Lifetime Achievement Award the night after the 44th Annual Grammy® Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The presentation celebrated Ramone’s status as one of the top producers in the history of the recording industry, known for his innovative work with legends such as Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and Gloria Estefan.
“The Lexicon Lifetime Achievement Award was created to honor true innovators for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the recording industry,” said Buzz Goodwin, Lexicon VP. “We present this award tonight to Phil Ramone for always being on the cutting edge of the music scene and for his contributions to the recording arts.”
“In the recording process, the key for me has always been studying what others want and keep thinking of new ways to do it better,” commented Ramone. “I thank Buzz and Lexicon for this award and for giving me the tools to let me shine for my artists. I love the music and I love you all. Thank you.”
