Slash Honoured with Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame -
The rock gods have finally paid homage to the illustrious &
influential career of Slash, earlier this year he was inducted into
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and yesterday (July 10th) the former
GnR slayer received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The guitarist attracted huge crowds outside of the Hard Rock
Cafe where radio host, Jim Ladd, former band mate Steven Alder,
producer Robert Evans & Charlie Sheen were all in
"I've been a part of the Hollywood fabric for a long time and to
actually be appreciated by the city of Hollywood is a huge, huge
honour," Slash said at the unveiling of his star on Tuesday, "And
so I want to thank everybody for this; it's unbelievable."
According to TMZ, Sheen was his usual controversial self as he
joked with the crowd:
"It's quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very
street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on … This star is going to
be stepped on more than the coke we did in the '80s."
In addition to his 2012 honours, Slash was also named by Time
magazine as the No. 2 guitarist of all-time, sitting just behind
Jimi Hendrix on their list.
Slash's star is located directly in front of the Hard Rock Café on
Hollywood Blvd (6801 Hollywood Blvd, #105 Los Angeles, CA
Slash, who has sold over 100 million albums in various rock
