Beatle George gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame


LOS ANGELES – Hundreds of fans and friends including Paul McCartney have turned out to see a posthumous star for George Harrison unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The late Beatle’s star was unveiled Tuesday in front of the Capitol Records building as McCartney, one of only two surviving members of the band, looked on. McCartney also offered a shout-out to hundreds of raucous fans, thanking them for showing up.

Also present were Harrison’s widow Olivia, his son Dhani, musicians Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne and actor Tom Hanks.

Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001 at age 58.

  1. Took ’em long enough. There are some people on the Walk of Fame that never had half the talent, and certainly not the success, that George had.
