Another Lifetime Achievement Award For Bob

A new Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for Bob Marley was presented to the late reggae singer's eldest son Ziggy and daughter Karen last night. The event took place immediately after a Recording Academy screening of the feature film documentary Marley, which was held in Hollywood at the Los Angeles Film School on Sunset Boulevard. The award was a replacement for the statue that had been awarded to Marley posthumously in 2001, as part of the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards.  The backstory began when members of The Recording Academy were visiting Jamaica, and they saw that the award had been damaged.  Last night's presentation was a surprise. Five-time Grammy Award winner Ziggy beamed when the replacement was handed to him.
