(London, UK--January 11, 2016) The executive board of the Music Producers Guild would like to express its sincere regret and sadness at the recent death from cancer of David Bowie, aged 69.
MPG Board Director Mick Glossop says: "Having previously acknowledged his unique talent and awesome greatness by presenting him with the MPG's Innovation Award in 2014, we can expand only by declaring that his presence in the world of musical creativity will be missed and never equalled."
The MPG Award for Innovation is given annually by the Music Producers Guild Awards Committee to a person working in music production whose work is seen to extend the boundaries of music production through innovative ideas and the creative use of technology.
The 2016 Music Producers Guild Awards will take place on February 3rd at the Grosvenor House in London and David Bowie will be very much in our thoughts.
