The rocker will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the MusiCares charity's 13th annual MAP Fund Benefit Concert in New York in June (17).

Adam is being feted for his "dedication to helping others with the addiction recovery process".

"MusiCares does such vital work in helping vulnerable people across our industry," said Clayton in a statement. "I know from experience the importance of an accessible, supportive environment in times of need and I'm always happy to do what I can to benefit this important organization. I'm very much looking forward to the event in June."

Clayton, 57, has struggled with substance abuse in the past, but he has been sober for more than two decades.

Neil Portnow, the president of The Recording Academy and MusiCares says, "Adam is a hero to fans and music creators around the world, and he is also a hero in the world of recovery for his fearless determination to give voice to the issues of addiction that affect - and all too often devastate - our music community."
