This year's CBGB Music & Film Festival has announced that Seymour Stein will be honored with the inaugural CBGB Icon Award and Van Toffler, former President of MTV Networks and current President of Viacom's Music and Logo Networks, will deliver the keynote address at this year's confab scheduled for Oct. 9-13 in New York City.
The Icon Award was created to reward those who support artists and music in truly meaningful ways. "For the first ever CBGB Icon Award, there was really only one possible choice and that is Seymour Stein," reads the official announcement. "Seymour's career in the record industry stands alone as something truly amazing. One must applaud the fact that he took so many of the early CBGB bands like Ramones, The Dead Boys and Talking Heads out from the Bowery to successes beyond measure. We are humbled that Seymour has agreed to accept this award on Oct 8."
The STARCK PROJECT thanks Seymour Stein for his support and to CBGB for allowing us to be a part of this celebration!
