Bowie And Cream Honoured For Lifetime Achievement

Rock legends DAVID BOWIE and the ERIC CLAPTON-fronted CREAM are to be honoured for their contributions to music with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys next month (FEB06).

The HEROES star and the proto-heavy metal trio will be formally recognised on 7 February (06), while the award is due to be presented the following evening during the live Grammy telecast.

The rockers will share their accolade with country icon MERLE HAGGARD and late comedy innovator RICHARD PRYOR, as well as deceased blues legend ROBERT JOHNSON, opera vocalist JESSYE NORMAN and pre-eminent folk quartet the WEAVERS.

MARIAH CAREY, KANYE WEST and newcomer JOHN LEGEND lead the nominations at the 2006 Grammys with eight apiece.
