Hollywood Blvd. was mobbed on Tuesday as scores of Slash fans, friends and family gathered to watch the famous guitarist receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the Hard Rock Café.
Among those honoring the longtime L.A. resident and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer were musician Myles Kennedy, who sings on Slash’s latest solo album The Apocalyptic Love, Guns N’ Roses bandmate Steven Adler and close pal and habitual headline-grabber Charlie Sheen, who had more than a few memorable things to say as guest speaker and didn’t exactly shy away from taboo topics like GNR lead singer Axl Rose.
“It’s quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on,” Sheen cracked. The Anger Management star got serious, too, giving due respect to his years of friendship with Slash.
