Yeah Buddy… Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award
Wow… four degrees at the Ranch when I got up this morning, but it’s warm in my heart. They just announced that my Jefferson Airplane pals and I will be getting a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Grammys. Wow…
Nobody I know got into this wacky business for awards… but to be honored by your peers, well… suffice it to say that it is indeed an honor. People often ask, ‘Did you ever think when you got started…’ that this, that or whatever would have happened? First of all, who knew we would live this long? Who would have dared to guess, that a little music picked in San Francisco over half a century ago would have such long leg and gained such… well, respectability.
Not I, that’s for sure.
Fame such as it is, recognition… ephemeral as it is… we’ll take it.
The family gets a kick out of all this and that’s the frosting on the cake.
So… my pals and I are so grateful for all this…
And that’s about it for today.
