Slash has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – with a little help from his rock n roll equal Charlie Sheen.

The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist attended a ceremony outside the Hard Rock Cafe in Los Angeles, yesterday (Tuesday).

It is a massive nod by the Hollywood establishment to Slash – who was born in Hampstead, London.

Forty six year old Slash said: “I’ve been a part of the Hollywood fabric for a long time and to actually be appreciated by the city of Hollywood is a huge, huge honour. And so I want to thank everybody for this; it’s unbelievable.

“This is a really special acknowledgement ... it’s the coolest thing you could ever get.

“I’m such a part of this scenery. I went to school here, and started playing guitar here, literally 100 yards down the street ... I got a very technicolor education up here.”

Charlie Sheen made a heartfelt speech in honour of his friend, also taking a swipe at Guns and Roses singer, Axl Rose.

Sheen joked: “It’s quite fitting, I think, that Slash is getting a star on the very street that Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on.

“This man here, through his music and through his person, through his compassion, has changed the way that I look at the world forever. That can only happen through true artistry.”
