Beatles to Receive Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

The Beatles
Apple Corps Ltd.

It doesn’t seem possible that the Beatles have any significant honors left to accrue, but they’re going to pick up one more on Jan. 25: a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.

The band will be part of a select group of honorees at this year’s ceremony, which includes the Isley Brothers, country legend Kris Kristofferson, art-pop pioneers Kraftwerk, zydeco kingpin Clifton Chenier, Mexican superstar Armando Manzanero and violinist Maud Powell.

Said Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow, “It is a great privilege to recognize such an exceptional group of honorees and celebrate their accomplishments and contributions to the recording industry. This astoundingly unique and gifted group have created some of the most distinguished and influential work in our musical history. Their legacies are timeless and legendary, and their creativity will continue to influence and inspire future generations.”

The Academy further lauded the Beatles in a press release, calling the group “one of the most influential groups in music history,” noting their seven Grammy wins, and concluding, “As a group, they have 15 recordings inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, including ‘Abbey Road,’ ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ ‘The Beatles (White Album),’ ‘Meet the Beatles!,’ ‘Revolver,’ ‘Rubber Soul’ and ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.’ As composers, songwriters, musicians, singers, and performers, the Beatles revolutionized the music industry and continue to influence future generations.”
