Jean Michel Jarre Receives The MOJO Lifetime Achievement Award 28
The MOJO Lifetime Achievement Award (presented by Sony Commercial Music Group)
Winner: Jean-Michel Jarre
PA: "Jean-Michel Jarre is up there with Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream as one of the real pioneers of electronic music. The difference is that Jarre has always thought on an epic scale. 1977's Oxygène is a seminal album, but we also salute the experimentation of later work like Zoolook. Jean-Michel's influence is incontestable and, for all his mainstream appeal, he also manages to make records that ooze an essential integrity."Jean Michel Jarre received the 2010 MOJO Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by none other than John Foxx.
After the award, Jarre had a special message for his fans:
First of all, I would like to pay tribute to all my fans around the world who are supporting my work constantly.
It has been one of the most encouraging elements of my life, and particularly this past year, for all the reasons you know.
The feedback, I receive from you all, night after night, in each city I am playing at the moment, is just great and gives me the energy to go on.
I want you to know that I share this Mojo Award with you all, around the world, because in a sense I feel that you deserve it also...
Jean Michel Jarre
