The Recording Academy's president and CEO Neil Portnow said the 2012 Trustee Award honorees Jobs, bandleader Dave Bartholomew, engineer Rudy Van Gelder as well as Lifetime Achievement Award honorees The Allman Brothers, Glen Campbell, Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Jones, the Memphis Horns, Diana Ross and Gil Scott-Heron, offered a variety of brilliance, contributions and lasting impressions on culture. "It is an honor to recognize such a diverse group of individuals whose talents and achievements have had an indelible impact on our industry," Portnow said.
