2005 Special Merit Honorees Announced
Awards honor lifelong contributions to the music industry

GRAMMY.com

The Recording Academy announced the 2005 Special Merit Award recipients today. Recording artists Led Zeppelin, Eddy Arnold, Art Blakey, the original members of the Carter Family, Morton Gould, Janis Joplin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jelly Roll Morton, Pinetop Perkins, and the Staple Singers will receive The Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Hoagy Carmichael, Don Cornelius, Alfred Lion, and Dr. Billy Taylor will be honored with the Academy Trustees Award. Phil Ramone and JBL Professional have been named recipients of the Technical GRAMMY Award.

The Lifetime Achievement Award honors lifelong artistic contributions to the recording medium while the Trustees Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the industry in a non-performing capacity. Both awards are decided by vote of The Recording Academy's National Trustees. Technical GRAMMY Award recipients are determined by vote of the members of the Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing and the Academy's Trustees. The award is presented to individuals and/or companies who have made contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field.

"The Lifetime Achievement, Trustees and Technical GRAMMY Awards recognize music people who have made a lasting contribution to culture around the world," said Neil Portnow, President of The Recording Academy. "These profoundly inspiring figures are being honored as legendary performers and archetypal musicians, cultural ambassadors, and technical visionaries. Their outstanding accomplishments and passion for their craft have created a timeless legacy that has positively affected multiple generations, and will continue to influence generations to come."

Formal acknowledgment of these Special Merit Awards will be made at a new elite ceremony during GRAMMY Week on Feb. 12, as well as during the 47th Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast. For more information about the honorees, please visit the official press release Web page.

I'd like to see Page, Plant & Jones play a couple of Zeppelin classics with possibly Jason Bonham or Zak Starkey on drums & steal the show since the Grammys are mostly boring & bland.
