Steve Jobs To Be Awarded A Grammy
In addition to his visionary work at Apple, Job was a lifelong Bob Dylan fan and – as reported in Walter Isaacson's recent biography – a guitarist. 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.
