Aerosmith is getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor the Boston-bred band with a star on Valentine’s Day

According to Boston.com:

Aerosmith has won four Grammys, been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and been the recipient of many more awards. One piece of recognition the band hasn’t received? A star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame — until now.

The “Bad Boys from Boston,” made up of vocalist Steven Tyler, lead guitarist Joe Perry, guitarist Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton, and drummer Joey Kramer, will be honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce with the 2,657th star in the recording category on Valentine’s Day.  Aerosmith’s five-pointed distinction will be stationed at 6752 Hollywood Blvd., in front of the Musicians Institute.

“Finally! We have been waiting a long time to honor Aerosmith with their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a press release. “Aerosmith is one of the greatest rock bands in the world and we expect many fans will be ‘Crazy’ excited to see them honored!”

The ceremony will take place next week on Feb. 14 at 2:30 p.m. EST, and can be livestreamed exclusively on the Hollywood Walk of Fame website.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
