This award is certainly an honor for Adam. Recovery from addiction is a powerful struggle, and anyone who has been through it knows how much it can change a person's life for the better.
On another note, is anyone else planning on attending the benefit concert where the award will be presented? I went a couple of year's ago when Pete Townshend was honored, and it was very cool. The Who performed with a bunch of special guests, including Bruce Springsteen (who presented the award to Pete Townshend). I'm hoping (and kind of expecting) that U2 will be performing at this year's benefit. The band will likely be in NYC for the shows at MetLife later that week, so it fits easily in their schedule.
I bought tickets as soon as I heard about it. It would be amazing to see U2 in that small of a room, and the cost of tickets benefits the MusiCares MAP Fund.
