Paul Named Godlike Genius By The NME
We are extremely proud to announce that Paul is set to be named Godlike Genius at this year's NME Awards.
The Award recognises Paul's contribution to music over his three decade career from his work with The Jam and Style Council to his solo career.
Paul will be attending and performing at the NME Award's ceremony which takes place on 24th February in London.
Speaking about being named Godlike Genius, Paul said: "I'm very happy to accept the award, I don't feel Godlike or a genius but I'm happy to have it.
"It's nice to be recognised, you get your rewards in other ways too like playing live and seeing people's reaction, but it's nice to be recognised. I'm very flattered. I shall find a special place for it. A little altar to myself with garlands of flowers around it!"
NME Editor, Krissi Murison said "Paul was first on the cover of NME with The Jam in 1977 and then again when he reinvented himself with The Style Council. Three decades on he remains just as influential as a solo artist - and it's this connection with the current music scene which makes him all the more Godlike."
