Elton John : Grow Some Funk of Your Own
Timed to coincide with the release of Rock of the Westies, Elton John received his Walk of Fame star in front of so many screaming fans Hollywood Boulevard had to be shut down. From a distance Elton looked like a leprechaun, but up close as he approached the microphone, you could see his suit was decked out in stars with names like Joel McCrae.
"I now declare this supermarket open!" Elton said. He posed quickly with his star then dashed into a waiting car telling one journalist he was nervous because it was hard "to think of things to say to the fuckin' pavement."
The $1250 star was paid for by Cashbox Magazine.
