Al Schmitt Gets Star on Walk of Fame


Al Schmitt has become the latest entertainment figure to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

One of the most celebrated recording and mix engineers in the business, Al Schmitt has won 23 Grammys – more than anyone else in his field.



Barbra Streisand, Sam Cooke and Paul McCartney are just a few of the music stars with whom the music producer was worked over the course of a career that has spanned more than half a century.

Al Schmitt, 85, was joined by producer Don Was and musician Joe Walsh at the dedication ceremony on August 13, fittingly held outside the Los Angeles headquarters of Capitol Records.

Sonia is the heart and the artist of the team. She loves art and all that it implies. As Sonia says, good music, a well directed movie, or attending a music or film festival melts people’s heart and make them better. She is great at painting and photography. Working on scrapbooks is her favorite activity.
