Metallica release MusiCares MAP Fund benefit acoustic performance

Metallica have released the audio of their four-song acoustic set from last week's MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit honoring Ozzy Osbourne to help further raise funds for the charity.

Metallica’s May 12th set at Club Nokia in Los Angeles included covers of songs by Rare Earth, Deep Purple, The Beatles and an Ozzy solo track.

All net proceeds from the sale of downloads of this show will be donated to the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

The 10th anniversary event saw Osbourne presented with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction recovery process.

The rocker joins the list of previous honorees including Anthony Kiedis, James Hetfield, Chris Cornell, Alice Cooper and Jerry Cantrell.

Ozzy and his touring band also performed at the event, joined by special guest Slash.
