MARK KING Mark King: “I’m so chuffed. So pleased to get an award. Pro­gres­sive is what mu­sic is all about to me. Peo­ple might won­der why a guy from a jazz funk band in the 80s is here, but that was only one part. As a mu­si­cian and com­poser you write all kinds of things. I’ve been lucky enough to work with all kinds of peo­ple over the years. I dis­cov­ered Cream when I was eight and then at 15 had an epiphany see­ing the Ma­hav­ishnu Orches­tra. It all made per­fect sense to me. And now I’m in Giz­mod­rome with Ste­wart [Copeland], Vit­to­rio [Cosma] and Adrian [Belew]. Just amaz­ing.”
