Apple's Steve Jobs awarded posthumous Grammy award

Famed for his love of music, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been honoured with the Grammys Trustees Award for contributions to the music scene

 

Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs has been awarded a posthumous Grammy award for his contributions to the music industry.

Jobs, the mastermind behind the Apple iPod and the music sales reviving iTunes music store, was last night recognised at the 2012 Grammys with the former Apple head the posthumous recipient of the Grammys Trustees Award.

The award honours "individuals who, during their careers in music, have made significant contributions, other than performance, to the field of recording." previous winners include guitar maestro Les Paul, cartoonist Walt Disney and The Beatles.

Accepting the award on Jobs' behalf, Apple Senior Vice President Of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, said: "Accepting this award means so much to me because music meant so much to him. He told us that music shaped his life. It made him who he was. Everyone who knows Steve knows the profound impact that artists like Bob Dylan and the Beatles had on him."
