Aerosmith Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Aerosmith is going to “Walk This Way” down the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Valentine’s Day. The band is next in line to get a star.
The group will be honored in front of the Musicians Institute, at 6752 Hollywood Blvd at 11:30 a.m. PST. They will be the 2,567th addition to the famed Hollywood destination.
Speaking to Variety, bass player Tom Hamilton says the honor is something the band –who is set to being a Las Vegas residency at Park MGM on April 6–never expected.
“The only things I knew to expect from being in a band and making it were girls, money and fame,” he said. “Oh, and being on ‘American Bandstand.” I never expected videos, digital recordings, playing in Russian or having a roller coaster at Disney World–never mind a star on Hollywood Blvd.”
