Yes, the Grammy Awards are right around the corner. So, then, too is the MusiCares Person of the Year dinner, this year honoring Aerosmith. The show is on January 24, 2020 at the LA Convention Center.
The first wave of artists who will serenade Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, et al have been announced. They include Gary Clark Jr., Foo Fighters, H.E.R., John Legend, and John Mayer, Alice Cooper, the Jonas Brothers, Emily King, and Yola. More names will come soon.
As usual, Greg Phillinganes will lead the A list band. And, of course, Aerosmith themselves– or itself– will likely perform one or two numbers. It should be quite a night.
MusiCares is the most important charity in the music and record business, bringing help to musicians who are down on their luck or in need of medical help including substance abuse and alcoholism. It’s a remarkable service because most of the musicians who play on our favorite records don’t have proper insurance or a financial net.
