Saul Hudson, also known as Slash, was born on the 23rd of July in 1965. He is a guitarist and a songwriter. Although, he is best known as a guitarist of the Guns N’ Roses band, he too performed in Velvet Underground. He sold over 100 million albums being a part of these two bands and recently has released he solo album called ‘Apocalyptic Love’, which was number 4 on the Billboard top 200.

Last Tuesday Slash got a Hollywood Walk of Face star. His first fans were visitors of nightclubs in Los Angeles Sunset Strip, but the star seems to be really fitting him. 🙂 Slash was a part of the Hollywood factory for a rather long time and admitted that the start was a really great honor for him: “And so I want to thank everybody for this; it’s unbelievable” he said at the ceremony.

Finally if you don’t know… The Hollywood Walk of Fame consists of 2,400 five-pointed stars which are made of terrazzo and brass. It occupies the territory of 15 blocks of Vine Street and Hollywood Boulevard. The stars divided into five categories: motion pictures, broadcast television, audio records/music, broadcast radio and theatre. Each of the categories has a special emblem.

There is too a so called ‘special category’ where you can find stars to corporate entities and service organizations. The stars of this category are located separately from the others on a private territory.
