Slash To Join Ozzy Osbourne At MusiCares Benefit Performance

Slash will join Ozzy Osbourne on stage at the tenth anny of MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert at Club Nokia in L.A. on May 12. At the event Ozzy will e presented with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition of his efforts to support the cause.

"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," said Osbourne.

Slash's appearance will come as Ozzy performs with his touring band. No word on the set Oz has planned.

"Ten years ago MusiCares merged with the Musicians' Assistance Program, originally founded by Buddy Arnold, to create the MusiCares MAP Fund," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and MusiCares. "Since then our addiction recovery resources and programs have grown substantially, and this annual benefit provides a meaningful way to recognize artists and industry professionals who are on the front lines in the battle to fight this crippling disease."
