NEWS - News: MusiCares Launches New Online Addiction Recovery Videos

Posted by USM on Monday, February 16, 2009 @ 19:10:35 CST
2 MusiCares and the MusiCares MAP Fund have produced a compelling new series of informational videos with artists. These short pieces cover a variety of topics — from addiction and the challenges of getting sober to life on the road and the benefits of sobriety — and offer intimate portraits of successful music people dealing with their own recovery or that of their band members. The videos feature Bob Forrest, Dave Kushner, Ozzy Osbourne, and Slash, as well as manager Bill Siddons. In addition, the page features Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney with Metallica's James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo performing "Them Bones" at the 2006 MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert.

In recognition of September being National Recovery Month, MusiCares has launched new online resources to continue our commitment to educate the music community about substance abuse issues. Please take a moment to explore the new offerings. While MusiCares works in confidentiality with clients, the artists and managers who appear here feel so strongly about our programs and services that they wanted to speak publicly about our Foundation.

In addition, we've added a special performance clip that features Alice In Chains� Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney with Metallica�s James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo performing "Them Bones" at the 2006 MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert.
