STP’s DeLeo brothers and Eric Kretz to play MusiCares later this month

The MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert is scheduled to take place later this month in Los Angeles, and a few big names have just been added to the benefit’s lineup. Stone Temple Pilots bass player Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz are all confirmed to perform at the event, while frontman (or former frontman, if you believe the DeLeo brothers) Scott Weiland will not appear with the crew. Other musicians set to take the stage include Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, Beastie Boys Mix Master Mike and ex-Guns N’ Roses band members Slash and Duff McKagan.

On top of performing at the show, Bennington will also be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award, which acknowledges his efforts to help the MusiCares MAP Fund. Skateboarder and musician Tony Alva will pick up the From the Heart Award, as well.

The MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert will take place at the Club Nokia on May 30. The fund offers people from the music community access to addiction recovery assets and help, including emergency financial aid for basic living expenses and medical expenses. For additional information about MusiCares, visit the organization’s official website.
