The Grammy Awards and Jack Kerouac

Since the Grammy Awards are trending, I got to thinking about Kerouac and the Grammys. Some quick Internet research reveals that the CD, "Readings by Jack Kerouac on The Beat Generation," reissued by Verve Records in 1997, was nominated for a Grammy in 1999 for Best Recording Package.

So there you have it: a Kerouac-Grammy connection.

Here's a trivia question for Daily Beat readers: Did Jack ever write about the Grammy Awards? They started in 1959, so he definitely would have heard of them.

Interesting, I didn't know that the Rhino recordings were nominated. Richard Marsh
