Steve's dulcet tones nominated for a Grammy
It's a good think KMT sent this in for your edification. I originally saw the article, but saw Bill Clinton in the headline and didn't read it.
Steve's in the middle.

Los Angeles: Former US president Bill Clinton, movie star Steve Martin, actor John Lithgow and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday won places alongside the world's top musicians as Grammy Award nominees.
An unlikely nominee, Clinton won his second consecutive nod for music's top awards in the best spoken word album category for the recording of his best-selling autobiography 'My Life'.
Earlier this year, the former leader won a golden gramophone statuette for lending his voice to the spoken word recording of Russian folk tale of 'Peter and the Wolf'.
Other unlikely Grammy nominees unveiled on Tuesday in Hollywood included funnyman Steve Martin, who also won a nod for best spoken word album for the recording of his novel 'The Pleasure of My Company'.
Lithgow, who starred in the hit television sitcom 'Third Rock from the Sun', won two Grammy nods, including one for best spoken word album for 'The World According To Mr. Rogers', which he shares with former 'Cagney and Lacey' star Tyne Daley and comic Lily Tomlin. Lithgow also won a nod for best spoken word album for children for 'Carnival Of The Animals'.
But, while the news for Clinton was good, former US first lady, Senator Hillary Clinton, did not repeat her Grammy nominations success of 2004, when she won a nod for best spoken word album for the reading of her autobiography 'Living History'.
The 47th annual Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles on February 13 next year.
