Chester Bennington to Be Honored by MusiCares
Linkin Park's Chester Bennington will be honored by MusiCares, Loudwire reports. The ninth annual MusicCares MAP Fund benefit concert, set for May 30 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, has announced that Bennington will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for both his commitment to helping addicts in their recovery process and his longstanding support for the MusiCares MAP Fund. The MusicCares MAP Fund provides critical access to addiction recovery treatment for members of the music community regardless of their financial status. Bennington has nothing but praise for what they do, saying, "MusiCares MAP Fund is an amazing program that takes care of their own, and actually saves lives." He continues, "It's been so rewarding to support them and see firsthand what they've accomplished for so many artists." In addition to Bennington, MusiCares will also honor legendary skateboarder Tony Alva, who was famously chronicled in the documentary "Dogtown And Z-Boys." He will receive the MusiCares' "From the Heart" award. Neil Portnow, the President/CEO of the Recording Academy and MusiCares spoke about Bennington and Alva, explaining, "Chester and Tony are passionate and highly influential artists in their respective professions and each of them has achieved impressive and much-deserved success. What unites them around the mission of MusiCares is their willingness to lend their time and talents to raise funds for our organization, and their desire to be of service to music people struggling with addiction. We truly appreciate their steadfast support and committed generosity." Bennington is in good company. Last year, Alice In Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell took home the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award.
