Slash Honoured with Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

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 attendance.

"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 90028).

Slash, who has sold over 100 million albums in various rock outfits, is currently celebrating the release of his new solo album, Apocalyptic Love, which hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200.
