The 10th anniversary MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert will honor Ozzy Osbourne, the Black Sabbath singer and heavy metal legend.
The event takes place at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on May 12.
Osbourne will be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award, which is bestowed upon the Blizzard of Ozz for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund. He is being recognized for his commitment to helping other addicts with their recovery.
Ozzy is a recovering addict himself and even had a relapse a while back, but he continues to fight the good fight.
"I know firsthand about the ravages of addiction and I also know that the MusiCares MAP Fund is a vital safety net for people in the music industry who need help with substance abuse," Osbourne said. "This organization literally saves lives."
The event also will include a performance by Osbourne, his band and special guest Slash. Additional performers will be announced shortly.
