Pete Townshend Honored with Les Paul Award
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.27.2013



The Who guitarist Pete Townshend received the Les Paul award at the 28th annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards in Anaheim, California on Friday night. NME reports that Townshend won the award, which recognizes the best in audio technology and production.

Accepting the award, Townshend said: "Before accepting this award I had no idea what kind of event it would, or even how far Anaheim was from anywhere, but I'm so glad I accepted. When I was 17 or 18, I got a couple of tape machines at home, and in the tradition of the great, great, great Les Paul and a couple of other people who did the same thing, I took these machines into my home and took these machines into my home to write music. From that moment on, I waited and waited and waited, and every idea that I ever had, or every hope that I ever had for a device that would do something that I wanted to do, you fabulous people made it for me."

He added, "I've been lucky that I could afford expensive equipment and eventually a studio, and you can see me at home fiddling with different machines. But out on the road now, with iPads and other bits and pieces, I'm very capable of doing things with those things as well. I just need to carry my guitars, keyboards, and cables, my mic stands. But I can record it all on my iPhone. It's such an honour to be here."
