Grateful Dead win Grammy - Lifetime Achievement

Perhaps it was the Grateful Dead's status as one of the most boot-legged acts, ever, that kept the Recording Academy from bestowing any official kudos until now. Fifty albums later and 11 years after the death of ex post facto frontman Jerry Garcia, however, the Anthem for the Sun rockers are getting their due.

The country's most successful touring band has seen a few faces come and go since it rose out of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury counterculture in the mid-'60s, but the Academy will be paying tribute to original members Garcia, drummer Bill Kreutzmann, guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Phil Lesh, along with eventual second drummer Mickey Hart.

as well, Bob Wills and Booker T Washington will be honoured.
