Congratulations to Gary Numan, who is to receive this year’s Innovation in Sound award from Q magazine.
The synth pop legend has been making music and has been covered by artists ranging from Foo Fighters.
Here’s what he said regarding the award.
“To receive any award in music is an honour. But to receive the Q Innovation In Sound award is particularly special. Sound is the most important aspect of making music to me, it’s why electronic music has been such an obsession. It allows you the opportunity to constantly create new and exciting sounds. I’m very grateful to Q for the award, and very proud.”
Three of Numan’s records are just about to be reissued on vinyl and will soon be performed live at UK shows.
The 2015 Q Awards will take place on 19 October.
