Beatles to get Grammys lifetime achievement award



Grammys organizers announced lifetime achievement awards for The Beatles and six other acts, including the Isley Brothers and electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk. The awards will be handed out a week ahead of the January 26th Grammys show.

“It is a great privilege to recognize such an exceptional group of honorees and celebrate their accomplishments and contributions to the recording industry,” said Neil Portnow, head of the Recording Academy, which organizes music’s annual version of the Oscars.

The Academy described the seven-times Grammy-winning Beatles, also known as the “Fab Four,” as one of the most influential groups in music history, whose music was “rooted in 1950s rock and roll” but developed to range from “pop ballads to psychedelic rock.”

Last year’s honorees included pop icon Michael Jackson and Canadian singer Leonard Cohen, as well as classical pianist Andre Previn.

Tinseltown’s annual awards season got into full swing Thursday with the announcement of nominees for the Golden Globes, the second biggest movie prizes after the Oscars. The Globes will be held on January 12the and the Oscars on March 2nd.
