The Doors and Ornette Coleman Among Grammy Lifetime Winners
I find it hard to believe, but the Doors, Joan Baez, Maria Callas, Ornette Coleman, Booker T & The MGs, Bob Wills and the Grateful Dead never received a Grammy during their entire careers. (One member of Booker T won a Grammy for cowriting Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay"). They're all getting Lifetime Grammys on February 11. And hey, Otis sure is lucky he cowrote that song or he'd be suing himself for credit on that whistling solo.
