System of the Down’s Shavo Odadjian Says AGBU Award Better Than a Grammy!


In an interview with Rick Florino for Artist Direct, Shavo Odadjian talks about how special the AGBU Generation Next “Community Award” he received a few months ago was for him:

This past February, the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) awarded Shavo with a community hero award for being a mentor. The kids nominated him, and he accepted it with his Achozen partner RZA (Wu-Tang Clan) in tow. “It was better than winning the Grammy, no joke. The Grammy is just industry; it’s corporate. This is from the kids. This shows you that a difference happened. The best thing in the world is when you can get someone to notice a difference. I was really emotional when I went up there. It was an amazing feeling. I know where I came from. The kids nominated me, and it was the best.” 

Here is a link to the original AGBU award press release.
