A star for former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has been added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At a ceremony outside the Capitol Records building on Monday night, Starr’s name was unveiled as the 2,401st star on the sidewalk attraction.

 

The Hollywood Walk of Fame also marked its 50th anniversary on Monday.

 

Those by Starr’s side for the unveiling included actress-wife Barbara Bach, musicians Jay Walsh and Ben Harper, producer Don Was, director David Lynch and actor Noah Wyle.

WALK OF FAME

John Lennon Walk of Fame Star not stolen

 

 

Several media outlets have reported that John Lennon’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame star was stolen. A plastic seal was recently found covering Lennon’s star and created panic amongst the media and fans. The plastic was actually set up to cover the star, which was being relocated. Ana Martinez of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, also known as wofstargirl on Twitter, confirmed that Lennon’s star was not stolen, but moved so that all the Beatles will be together some day.

 

“Yes, as a gift to fans, we moved John Lennon’s star next to George Harrison’s and Ringo’s will be there soon 2,” she wrote on Twitter yesterday. “Just waiting for Paul now!”

 

Lennon’s star has been moved next to George Harrison’s star, which is near the Capitol Tower, in hopes that someday all the Beatles individual stars will be all together. Ringo Starr’s Walk of Fame star, which will be dedicated at the 50th Anniversary of the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 8, 2010, will mean that all of the Beatles – except for Paul McCartney – will have their own stars. McCartney’s star will also be located in that same area when his star is finally dedicated. But he hasn’t set up a date for a star ceremony, though he has been approached about it.

 

There are no plans to move the star for the Beatles as a group, which is located on Hollywood Blvd.
