Alice in Chains singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the eighth annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit last night at Club Nokia in L.A. Cantrell was first introduced on videotape by Metallica‘s James Hetfield and then in person by Alice in Chains drummer Sean Kinney. The band closed the evening with a five song semi-acoustic set of “Nutshell,” “Your Decision,” “No Excuses,” “Got Me Wrong” and “Would?”

Earlier performers included Duff McKagan’s Loaded, who were joined by Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart for two songs; Billy Idol — who played “Dancing With Myself” “White Wedding” and “Rebel Yell” — and former Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age member Mark Lanegan.

Steve O hosted the evening and Moby deejayed. Music publishing executive Neil Lasher was also honored with MusiCares’ From the Heart Award.

The MusiCares MAP Fund provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment and provides emergency financial assistance and other services to musicians in need.

Red Hot Chili Peppers fans, you won’t have to wait another four years for new music. The recent Rock Hall inductees are planning to release a series of digital and seven-inch vinyl singles over the rest of the year. Drummer Chad Smith promises that there are at least 10 tracks from the I’m With You sessions on the way, and bassist Flea says they’ve been “writing stuff while touring” and will “put out 18 new songs over the next six months.”
