George Harrison to get Hollywood Walk of Fame star

12.00pm, Saturday 4 April 2009 (5 years ago)

George Harrison is to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame later this month.

The Beatles’ guitarist will be honoured posthumously at a Los Angeles ceremony to unveil the star. His wife Olivia and son Dhani will accept the honour on his behalf.

The ceremony is to take place on 14 April at 11.30am PST, on the Walk of Fame at 1750 Vine Street, in front of the Capitol Records building, and will be open to the public.

Harrison, who died of cancer in 2001, already shares a Walk of Fame star with the other three Beatles, but only he and John Lennon will have their own stars. Harrison’s star will be the 2,382nd on the Walk.

Capitol/EMI says it also plans to announce details for a new Harrison music project later this month. Martin Scorsese is also directing a forthcoming documentary on Harrison.

    I’m so glad to see George Harrison receiving recognition for his many contributions to the arts and the world.
    It would be fitting for Great Britain to honor him with a knighthood for his valiant efforts as a humanitarian, film maker and gardener extraordinaire.
