U2 bassist Adam Clayton will receive a prestigious honor for his willingness to help his fellow musicians.
He'll pick up the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the 13th annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert on June 26th at the PlayStation Theater in New York. It's given recognition of his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund as well as his commitment to helping others recover from addiction.
Clayton, who has had his own battles with substance abuse, says, "MusiCares does such vital work in helping vulnerable people across our industry. I know from experience the importance of an accessible, supportive environment in times of need, and I'm always happy to do what I can to benefit this important organization."
The MusiCares MAP Fund provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment.
