Sir Elton John & Bernie Taupin, 2002
Partners in song.
David Munns OBE, Chairman of the MITS Award committee:
“Elton John and Bernie Taupin have written some of the greatest songs of all time. For over three decades their songwriting partnership has endured and produced hit after hit. They represent the best of British songwriting and are known and admired throughout the world. We are greatly looking forward to honouring Bernie and Elton…and having the two of them in the same room!” A reference to the fact that, with the exception of the latest hit album, ‘Songs From The West Coast’, the two have written in isolation using mail, fax and email.”
