Remembering Phil RamoneAmong the many acts of generosity and service Phil Ramone provided to the GRAMMY family was his position as a member of the board of from 2002 – 2005. He also applied his artistic touch as musical director to the Person of the Year event, 11 times. MusiCares honors his consistently supportive, often irreverent, and forever-to-be-missed friendship. Billy Joel recently paid Phil Tribute in Rolling Stone. We echo his sentiments. “He was beloved by every artist he ever worked with, because he was so musical and technically a genius, and funny and warm and unpretentious.”
With our deepest love and respect,
The MusiCares Foundation
