2019 Lifetime Achievement Grammy's will be presented to Black Sabbath, Dionne Warwick, Sam & Dave, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Billy Eckstine, Donny Hathaway, and Julio Iglesias on May 11th at a special presentation ceremony and concert in Los Angeles. Variety reported "impresario Lou Adler, legendary songwriting and performing duo Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson, and Oscar-winning songwriter and arranger Johnny Mandel are Trustees Award honorees; and Saul Walker is the Technical Grammy Award recipient."

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi told us not long ago that determination has always been the key to his success and longevity: "I've always been the same. I always have to try to get over that barrier, whatever it may be, and do it, y'know? And that's continued in what I do with the music. People have said over the years, 'Well, why do you still keep playing and why do you still hold Black Sabbath together through the different lineups?' Because I'm determined to do it, I'm determined to carry on. And it's been with everything like that."
