Bowie Snags Lifetime Achievement Grammy

David Bowie is at long last being given a consolation prize Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy. E! Online reveals that "Bowie has never won a Grammy." The poor thing! Though the San Bernadino Sun says he won one in 1984 for best short form video. They can't both be right! (Memo to E! Online: the Grammy Winners Search database is quick and easy to use).

So, after winning a measly single Grammy, Bowie is being given a Lifetime Achievement Award. Well-deserved. That he hasn't won more of the things is a good reminder that whether or not someone's won any number of awards doesn't necessarily tell us much.

David Bowie - Rebel Rebel (a single, also on Diamond Dogs, etc.)

David Bowie - The Heart's Filthy Lesson (Alt. Mix) (from the single)

David Bowie - Hallo Spaceboy (Pet Shop Boys Remix) (single, was also on the Japanese version of Outside)
