Duran Duran's John Taylor to receive Experience, Strength and Hope Award

presented by Robert Downey Jr. Guest host, Ed Begley Jr.
Special guest: Ione Skye
PERFORMANCE by: BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT

Reception 6:30-8PM
Show 8:00-9:45PM


Taylor's memoir "In the Pleasure Groove: Love, Death & Duran Duran" tells of his upbringing in Birmingham, England, his years with Duran Duran, and his road to recovery. "'I won't say I went right away [to rehab], I had to hit bottom, which meant going out and getting so f**ked up, so disillusioned by my own inability to control myself, and then surrender. Now it's been a whole different me, and I wanted to write about that. A lot of people are struggling and a lot of people still don't believe that sobriety is possible for them."

The charity event with generous support from New Directions for Women is a celebration of the benefits of clean and sober living and the importance of humor in the recovery process. All proceeds benefit Writers In Treatment's Jewelle Sturm Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Past ceremony participants include award-winning actor and activist Ed Begley, Jr., actors Danny Trejo, Tony Denison, Jack McGee, and actress Joanna Cassidy. In addition to comedians, Barry Diamond, Stevie Mack, Wendy Hammers and Mick Bettencourt. This year's award will be presented by Robert Downey Jr.
