How did Ernie Hudson have one, but not Paul?

Guess they waited for this whole 'British Invasion' trend to die down. Had to see if he's the real deal or just a flash in the pan.

Well, "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time" probably delayed the award by a few years.

I thought the Hollywood walk of fame was just for people involved in the movie industry?

Apparently not. If they're looking at music as well, there's not many people more deserving of a star than McCartney

It's a whole process actually. He was previously nominated in the 80s and ended up declining to be present for the unveiling so they canned it.

1. a nomination goes in
2. it must accompany an agreement letter from the artist or thier management company
3. nominees are chosen
4. whoever nominated it forks over 30k for the star to be built
5. the star HAS to appear in person for the star to be unveiled

Congratulations you have been selected to pay us $30,000 and receive this slab of rock with a star and your name on it for people to walk on for years to come.


Really though, it's cool he is finally getting one.

Haha, he doesn't pay the $30k. Whoever nominated him does, could be a fan club, or other individual just wanting to honor him. Starz Network paid for someone's recently.

John, George and Ringo all have stars. Who knows why Ringo got his before Paul.
