Slash officially received his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame yesterday (July 11th), with movie star Charlie Sheen using the occasion to deliver a little dig at the legendary guitarist’s former Guns N Roses bandmate Axl Rose.
The ceremony took place in front of the Hard Rock Cafe in Los Angeles, with Sheen telling the assembled audience that: “It’s quite fitting I think that Slash is getting a star on the very street that Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on.”
For his part, Slash used his speech to simply thank Hollywood for the honour, reflecting that he has been ‘a part of the fabric’ for a long time.
“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 honor,” he said. “And so I want to thank everybody for this; it’s unbelievable.”
Music producer Robert Evans and radio host Jim Ladd were also present for the ceremony.Just Published:
