skinink: I fund it funny that Axl reacts to hearing about Slash like the Three Stooges react to hearing about Niagra Falls.
meat0918: I thought they bought those things?
geedub: . . . . .why?"Slash is widely considered one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time"By people who don't listen to very many rock guitarists.
A Screaming Man with Two-Toned Shoes: I heard they were running out of star space so they had to consolidate new celebrities. Slash is actually receiving his with Gordon Sumner. It says SLING.You're welcome.
ModernPrimitive01: geedub: . . . . .why?"Slash is widely considered one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time"By people who don't listen to very many rock guitarists.He is really mainstream and gets a lot of publicity within the industry. Have an awards show and need a famous guitarist to walk on stage during a pop song to give your lip singing artist an edge? Call Slash. Need a famous guitarist to do a guest spot on an album to add some street cred to the shiatty new band your label just signed? Call Slash. Need someone who looks like a cartoon caricature to promote your new equipment? Call Slash
Staffist: meat0918: I thought they bought those things?Sort of. It's run by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and while there is a fairly extensive and competitive nominating process, there is a cost to cover the actual star and the ceremony itself but it's not quite a simple 'oh anyone can get one of those' transaction.CSB:I had a hand in putting this one together:[i172.photobucket.com image 640x480][i172.photobucket.com image 480x640][i172.photobucket.com image 480x640]
AliceBToklasLives: Wait I thought Slash was an urban legend?

Nana's Vibrator: meat0918: I thought they bought those things?That's what I've heard, too. I've never been there, but it seems that the "walk of fame" is so vast and indiscriminate that we Farkers could install a star for someone overnight and no one would be the wiser.
lisarenee3505: I swear, this guy has not changed his clothes in over 20 years. Gotta hand it to him though, he found a "rock star" look that works for him and he's stuck with it./don't wanna think about what the inside of that top hat smells like though
