The Beatles, Isley Brothers to receive lifetime Grammys

The Beatles, Kris Kristofferson, the Isley Brothers and electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk are among the musical acts who will receive the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement honors at a ceremony the night before the Grammys on Jan. 26. Joining them with lifetime awards will be Creole musician Clifton Chenier and Mexican-born singer-songwriter Armando Manzanero

Additional honorees include rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall and Italian composer Ennio Morricone. Emile Berliner, the inventor of the gramophone, will posthumously receive the Technical Grammy Award.

Paul McCartney, meanwhile, is in the running for three awards at the upcoming Grammys. There will also be a Beatles 50th anniversary special to coincide with the Grammy ceremony.

Last week, the Recording Academy announced nominations for the 56th Grammy Awards. Jay-Z leads the pack with nine nods, while some newcomers, including rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, scored in some big categories.
