Stone Temple Pilots, with new lead singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, performed at the 9th annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Bennington was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication and support of the charity, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction recovery process.
"MusiCares MAP Fund is an amazing program that takes care of their own, and actually saves lives," said Bennington. "It's been so rewarding to support them and see firsthand what they've accomplished for so many artists."
All proceeds from the event will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.
Stone Temple Pilots played a 6-song set that included some band classics plus their new single, “Out Of Time.” The group was also joined by Slash and Duff McKagan for a cover of the David Bowie-written song, “All The Young Dudes,” made famous by Mott The Hoople.
Thursday’s event was the second live appearance by the new Stone Temple Pilots lineup; they debuted with a surprise appearance at a Los Angeles radio station festival on May 18.
