Most cool Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, among them the ever lovin’ Grateful Dead!:
From the BBC:
Iconic rock group The Doors and folk singer Joan Baez have received Grammy awards for lifetime achievement.
They were among the acts celebrated by the US Recording Academy in recognition of careers that changed music.
Also honoured were psychedelic rockers The Grateful Dead, soul band Booker T and The MGs, jazz legend Ornette Coleman and opera singer Maria Callas.
The lifetime awards were presented on the eve of the main Grammy ceremony, where Mary J Blige leads nominations…
Protest singer Baez, who was a key figure in the anti-Vietnam war movement, closed the ceremony by paying tribute to US President George W Bush.
“President Bush is the best publicity agent I’ve ever had,” she said.
