Beach Boys, Bennett, Marley to receive lifetime achievement Grammys

ATLANTA , Georgia (CNN) -- The Beach Boys, Tony Bennett, Bob Marley, Sammy Davis Jr. and the Who will receive Lifetime Achievement Grammys, the Recording Academy announced Tuesday.

The Lifetime Achievement Awards, to be bestowed during Grammy week in February, honor artistic contributions to the recording industry.

  • The Beach Boys are credited with pioneering the California surfer sound with pop hits like "California Girls," "Help Me, Rhonda" and "Good Vibrations."


  • Jamaican Bob Marley introduced the world to reggae with such songs as "No Woman, No Cry," "Waiting in Vain" and "One Love/People Get Ready." Marley died of cancer at age 36 in 1981.


  • Tony Bennett is the only one on the list to have won a Grammy; he has nine. His more popular numbers are "Rags To Riches," "Just In Time" and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."


  • Sammy Davis Jr. is best remembered as part of the Rat Pack, a group of entertainers whose ranks included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. He made his mark with such classics as "That Old Black Magic" and "What Kind Of Fool Am I?" He died of cancer in 1990 at age 55.


  • The Who is considered one of the key figures in the British Invasion and the "mod" movement of the mid-'60s. Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Keith Moon, John Entwistle and Kenny Jones comprised the band, whose credits include the rock opera "Tommy."


Producers Arif Mardin and Phil Ramone have been tapped to receive Trustees Awards, which recognize outstanding contributions to the industry in a non-performing capacity.

Mardin, who already holds six Grammys, has collaborated on such hits as the Young Rascals' "Good Lovin'" and Aretha Franklin's "Respect." Ramone, a creative force behind the work of John Coltrane, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand, will add a ninth Grammy to his collection.
