The Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce has announced that Slash will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on Tuesday, July 10 in front of Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Blvd.
"Slash is widely considered one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time," said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk Of Fame ceremonies, "We are proud to place his name among the stars on our fabled Hollywood Walk Of Fame."
In celebration of the star dedication, Slash will perform at a private acoustic performance and exclusive question-and-answer session with Slash and Myles Kennedy at Hard Rock Café Hollywood Blvd. after the ceremony. Fans will have the opportunity to win tickets to the exclusive show by listening to KLOS 95.5 starting June 25.
Hard Rock has created a limited edition pin to commemorate the historic occasion of one of rock n roll's most iconic guitarists receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Only 300 of these pins will be created and will be sold only at the Hard Rock Café Hollywood Blvd. with all proceeds benefitting the Los Angeles Youth Network and the Hollywood Historic Trust which maintains the iconic Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
Charlie Sheen, a neighbor and personal friend of Slash's who called himself a "Rock Star From Mars" when he underwent a public meltdown amid his firing from the CBS show "Two and a Half Men", will speak at Slash's induction ceremony.
