News   Recording Academy Comments on Death of Steve Jobs
The Recording Academy has issued a statement following the death of Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple who died Oct. 5 at the age of 56 following a lengthy battle with cancer.

Neil Portnow, the President/CEO of the The Recording Academy, stated, "Visionary, pioneer, innovator, genius — all of these words and more have been used to describe the dynamic, passionate, and driven Steve Jobs, who always believed, and often proved, that the impossible was possible. He took technology and turned it into art, becoming a key player and leader in the entertainment world, particularly music, and changing the way we all use the Internet and consume music, TV, movies, books, graphics, and more. "In 2002, Apple Computer, Inc. was a recipient of the Technical GRAMMY® Award for contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field — which the groundbreaking company continues to achieve to this day. The world has lost an inspiring and creative inventor whose extraordinary legacy will forever remain present in our lives. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, his friends, and the outstanding employees of Apple who will continue to honor his memory and vision."
