Heart's Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson; Billy Idol and band members Jeremy Colson (drums), Stephen McGrath (bass), Billy Morrison (guitars), Derek Sherinian (keyboards), and Steve Stevens (guitars); singer/songwriter Mark Lanegan (Queens Of The Stone Age, Screaming Trees); and bassist Duff McKagan (Loaded, Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver) have been added to the performance lineup for the eighth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert on May 31 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

The benefit concert will honor Alice In Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell and certified interventionist and Sony/ATV Music Publishing Senior Consultant Neil Lasher. Cantrell will be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction and recovery process. Lasher will be the recipient of MusiCares' From The Heart Award for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the organization.

Hosted by television personality Steve-O, the evening will also feature a special performance by eight-time GRAMMY nominees Alice In Chains, featuring guitarist/vocalist Cantrell, guitarist/vocalist William DuVall, bassist Mike Inez, and drummer Sean Kinney. GRAMMY-nominated musician Moby will DJ live during dinner.

All proceeds will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.
