Rocker Dave Navarro will be honoured for his devotion to helping addicts overcome their problems.

The former Jane's Addiction guitarist, who documented his drug abuse and recovery in his book DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME, will receive his accolade from MUSICARES, reports MTV NEWS.

Tom Arnold will serve as host for the gala, which will be held on 20 May (05) at the Music Box in Hollywood, and will feature performances by JERRY CANTRELL and Navarro's new band THE PANIC CHANNEL, which also includes STEPHEN PERKINS.

All proceeds from the event will benefit MusiCares' MAP FUND, which provides musicians with access to recovery treatment.
