The 10-time Grammy winner will be honored at the gala event by Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt, John Mellencamp, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tom Jones, and Eddie Vedder, as well as alt-rockers Jack White and The Black Keys.  More names likely to be added to the bill.  The February 6 bash will raise money for the MusiCares Foundation, which provides programs and services to musicians and music industry people in need.

"In celebrating the 25th anniversary of our MusiCares Person of the Year tribute, it is most fitting that we are honoring Bob Dylan, whose body of creative work has contributed to America's culture, as well as that of the entire world, in genuinely deep and lasting ways," said Neil Portnow, the president of the Recording Academy, and President and CEO of the MusiCares Foundation.

The MusiCares Gala will take place days before the 57th annual Grammy Awards, scheduled to take place February 8 at L.A.'s Staples Center.
