And The Grammy Goes To... - Bowie, Johnson to receive Grammy honors

Bowie, Johnson to receive Grammy honors
LOS ANGELES (AP) — David Bowie, blues pioneer Robert Johnson and the late comedian Richard Pryor are among the recording artists slated to receive lifetime achievement honors during next month's Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy said Tuesday

Eric Clapton's '60s rock group Cream, country singer-songwriter Merle Haggard, opera vocalist Jessye Norman and '50s folk quartet the Weavers, are also due to be honored.

The awards are meant to recognize artistic contributions in the recording medium over a lifetime.

The awards are scheduled to be presented on Feb. 7. The 48th Annual Grammy Awards show, broadcast on CBS, is Feb. 8 in Los Angeles.

And they so deserve the recognition.
