HMMA is proud to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to one of music’s greatest luminaries, Artie Kornfeld. The presentation will take place at the 2010 Event on November 18, 2010 at the Highlands in the Kodak Theater Complex / Hollywood & Highlands Center.
History – Kornfeld is the son of a New York City policeman and his wife (Irving & Shirley). Brought up in the early 50s in Levittown, NY, Kornfeld’s family constantly moved and he attended six different schools, learning the lessons of the world through the song lyrics played over the radio. Artie Kornfeld would soon live his American dream and become the guiding force to what is now known as “The Woodstock Generation”.
The Changin Times
Artie Kornfeld along with Steve Duboff teamed as the Pop/Folk group the Changing Times. They had a 1965 hit with “the Pied Piper’ one of the most covered records in publishing and were on tour with Sonny & Cher during the 1965 “I got you babe” Tour. Kornfeld was also the writer of “Deadman’s Curve” from Jan & Dean and songwriter/ producer of the 1967 hit by the Cowsills “The Rain, The Park, and Other Things”
