CHRIS CORNELL To Be Honored For Charity Work

Reuters reports that former SOUNDGARDEN and AUDIOSLAVE singer Chris Cornell will be honored for his efforts to help addicts with their recovery during a dinner and concert in Hollywood on May 11, organizers said on Wednesday.

Cornell, a recovering alcoholic himself, will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award during the third annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert organized by the MusiCares Foundation, the charitable arm of the Recording Academy, the group that hands out the Grammys. The fund provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

Cornell, who will release his second solo album, "Carry On", on June 5, will perform during the event at the Music Box theater. Other scheduled acts include David Gahan of DEPECHE MODE, blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and the band ARMY OF ANYONE, whose lineup includes two former members of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and former FILTER singer Richard Patrick.
