Momson told Rolling Stone he was proud to be a part of the event and spoke of what MusiCares means to him.
"MusicCares has helped so many of my friends and family in the music community, and now, branching out to COVID relief and all the other angles that help the music world is incredible and such an honor to be a part of. It’s looking like this event is going to have such a fantastic line up of acts that I respect so much and I can’t wait to see where it goes!" he said.
The music publication adds some of the performances will be held at artists homes and others at venues like West Hollywood, Calif.’s Whisky a Go Go, the Roxy Theatre and the Viper Room.
Morrison Hotel Gallery represents photographers who have shot some of the most iconic photos in music history and has galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Maui, Hawaii. The gallery began with Henry Diltz's archive, including his Doors' Morrison Hotel album cover.
