2004 Canadian Music Hall of Fame Inductee Announced

TORONTO, February 3, 2004 - The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) today announced the induction of producer/musician Bob Ezrin to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame .
Ezrin will be honoured at the 2004 JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards ceremony on Saturday, April 3, 2004 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.

Considered one of the most respected producers in music history, Ezrin co-produced Pink Floyd's record-breaking album The Wall . Ezrin has also produced, arranged, mixed and played on legendary albums for numerous Canadian and international artists such as the Guess Who, KISS, Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel, Jane's Addiction, the Kings, Murray McLauchlan and Liona Boyd.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to have Bob Ezrin join the Canadian Music Hall of Fame," said Melanie Berry, President of CARAS. "Bob's ground-breaking successes as both musician and producer exemplify the art and innovation that continues to advance Canadian music on the world stage."

"This is the greatest honour that has ever been bestowed on me," said Bob Ezrin. "Nothing is dearer to me than being recognized in my homeland.  It is also humbling to be put in the company of so many true icons. I will do my very best to live up to this."

The Canadian Music Hall of Fame was established in 1978 by CARAS to honour individuals or groups who have made an outstanding contribution toward the greater international recognition of Canadian artists and music. Current members of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame include: Lenny Breau, Glenn Gould, John Kay, Joni Mitchell, Anne Murray, Oscar Peterson, Rush and The Band among others. Last year's inductees were singer /songwriter Tom Cochrane and Nettwerk Music Group CEO Terry McBride .
