Recordings by Aerosmith, David Bowie, and The Rolling Stones are among the 2018 additions to the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Several classic songs and albums have been chosen by America’s Recording Academy committee as part of a “commitment to preserving and celebrating timeless recordings” the organization’s president Neil Portnow noted.
Among the songs included are “Dream On” by Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones hit “Paint it Black,” Bowie’s classic “Space Oddity,” and Whitney Houston’s cover of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Meanwhile, “Nevermind” by Nirvana, Queen‘s “A Night at the Opera,” Dr Dre’s “The Chronic,” and “Band of Gypsys” by Jimi Hendrix are among the albums which will be added to the Hall of Fame’s recordings.
Portnow added, “The Grammy Hall of Fame strives to embody the changing climate of music throughout these past decades, always acknowledging the diversity of musical expression for which the Academy has become known.”
