Hi guys, I decided to drive out to see George get his star in Hollywood today. It was a fantastic day. Very crowded but pleasant and sunny.
Today's guests included Tom Hanks, Tom Petty, Eric Idle, Jeff Lynne (I think?), Olivia and Dhani Harrison, and a surprise guest was Paul McCartney. I had no clue he would be there and I totally died (see my mailbox note, it's pathetic).
Eric, Olivia, and some others gave speeches for today's event. I think Dhani only said "Hare Krishna" to the crowd and Paul did not give a speech. However, Eric said that Paul was a really, really great friend to George as he was dying, and I believe he said that George actually died in Paul's house.
Since it was so crowded, I couldn't get many good pics. (I was stuck at the back near the press entrance.) I'll see what I can upload, but it's not much. George's new star looks great, BTW, and I got to visit John's star too.
I just had to share this with you all. I wasn't even sure if I was going to go today since I'm terrible with driving directions, but I am SOOO glad I went! (grin) (grin) (grin)
