Kingston Trio to get Lifetime Achievement Grammy

Good news, and the award is well-deserved.

Kingston Trio to get Lifetime Achievement Grammy - SignOnSanDiego.com: "The Kingston Trio, the pioneering folk music group that rose to fame in the 1950s and featured two San Diego-bred musicians, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in February. Best known for such hits as 1958's chart-topping 'Tom Dooley,' 1959's 'Tijuana Jail,' 1962's 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone?' and 1963's 'Greenback Dollar,' the trio scored 14 Top 10 and five No. 1 albums in its heyday."

I'm glad they're getting a Lifetime Achievement Award, but I can't believe they haven't received one before now. Long overdue!

Sad that the original members aren't around to revel in this well-deserved honor.

At least Bob Shane's still around, and doing pretty well. I hope he'll be there.
