Pete en manager Bill Curbishley krijgen beide een Award, die uitgereikt wordt door MusiCares. Dat meldt The Who op hun Facebookpagina, met een link naar Classic Hits and Oldies.
“The Who‘s Pete Townshend has made a lasting impact on the rock world thanks to the amazing music he’s created, and he also has made his mark by being a major supporter of programs designed to aid musicians battling addiction and substance abuse. Now, the rock legend has been chosen to receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication to the MusiCares MAP Fund.
The Who’s longtime manager, Bill Curbishley, also will be honored at the event, with the From the Heart Award, which acknowledges his “unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the [MusiCares] organization.”“
