The Seattle music community and a host of friends paid tribute to Mike McCready at MusiCares' 2018 Concert For Recovery. The Pearl Jam guitarist was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition of his significant dedication to and support of MusiCares and his commitment to helping others in the addiction recovery process.
The event featured all-star performances by the likes of McCready, Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, Heart's Nancy Wilson, and Social Distortion's Mike Ness, among others. The electric performances proved to provide a perfect soundtrack for championing MusiCares' role in the music industry and celebrating the power of sobriety.
"MusiCares is a very amazing organization in terms of their efficiency," said McCready. "I've made six phone calls and people have gotten [help] the next day."
