Eminem - Eminem Remembers Late Engineer Steve King

Rap superstar Eminem has paid tribute to Steve King, the Grammy-winning studio engineer who died on Tuesday (03Jun14).

Music industry veteran King passed away from liver disease in a Detroit, Michigan hospital at the age of 56.

He won a Grammy for his work on 2003 album The Eminem Show, and the Real Slim Shady star has now spoken out to share his memories of their time in the studio together.

He says, "I'm very sad to hear about Steve King's passing. I had the honour and pleasure of working with Steve on many projects in my earlier years and he was a greatly talented engineer, musician and friend. I will miss Steve's friendly way and sense of humour the most. My condolences go out to his family and all that knew Steve."

As well as The Eminem Show, King also worked with the hip-hop star on his 8 Mile movie soundtrack. Other stars he worked as an engineer for include Aretha Franklin, Patti Smith, George Clinton, and 50 Cent.
