10/27/16

ASCAP has chosen Duran Duran as the recipient of this year’s Golden Note Award, which will be presented during the ASCAP Awards in London on 11/10. Will the band dance across the Rio Grande? 

The accolade honours songwriters, composers and artists who have achieved extraordinary career milestones. Duran Duran join past recipients Jeff LynneLindsey BuckinghamAlicia Keys, Lionel RichieElton JohnGeorge MichaelStevie Wonder and Quincy Jones.

“Duran Duran revolutionised popular music,” said ASCAP President Paul Williams. “They are the pioneers of the synthpop and new wave movement and have reached a stratospheric level of success which is rarely seen in the industry.”

Duran Duran formed in the industrial midlands city of Birmingham, England, in 1978. Over three decades they topped charts around the world, selling more than 100m records.
