The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) will honor Duran Duran with its Golden Note Award at the 2016 ASCAP Awards in London next month.
Calling the band "multi-platinum pop visionaries," ASCAP lauded Duran Duran for having written "four decades of hits." Singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor will get the award on Nov. 10 at ASCAP's annual celebration of songwriters and composers at One Embankment in the British capital.
The ASCAP Golden Note Award is for songwriters, composers and artists who have "achieved extraordinary career milestones." Past recipients include Alicia Keys, Lionel Richie, Elton John, George Michael, Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones.
