SPANDAU BALLET’S GARY KEMP RECEIVES IVOR NOVELLO AWARD

SPANDAU BALLET songwriter GARY KEMP was yesterday awarded the prestigious Ivor Novello award for 'Outstanding Song Collection' at the awards' annual ceremony in London.

Kemp has been quoted as saying "Receiving this Ivor for Outstanding Song Collection is the greatest honour of my career and I am absolutely blown away. It's the recognition from one’s peers that makes this award so special and humbling. Thank you to the Academy. It's also made me feel very nostalgic for that twelve-year-old boy, who in 1972 started writing songs alone in his bedroom and wondered if he was weird."
