The 8th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Musical Composition - Michael Kamen

This year’s inductee is as celebrated in his capacity as a highly sought arranger as he is for his own compositions. Working with the likes of Pink Floyd, Rush, Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, Kamen operated concurrently in this role while producing some of the most memorable film and television music from the 1980s and 1990s. Be it his arrangements for action films such as Highlander, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, as a regular collaborator on Terry Gilliam’s films, or in his intelligent use of popular musicians to fit a film project, Kamen was a master composer.
