Previous recipients of the gong include Gloria Estefan, Taylor Swift and The Who's Pete Townshend.
"More than 20 years ago, I purchased my first electric guitar. It was for the largest band in the world Metallica," he said.
"I feel like a 14-year-old."
The electric guitar player is no stranger to award ceremonies having already picked up 17 Latin Grammy awards over the course of his career.
