LOL, if the date works for me, I would like to go!  :)

Congrats to Ringo, our "Starr"!  I wonder if his star will be close to John and George's at the Capitol Records building.

I hope Paul gets one too someday.

Congratulations Ringo!

Everytime I hear news that people are getting a Star I always get a little angry becaues I still can't believe River Phoenix doesn't have a star yet!

Nope! Is there some sort of requirement for a star. Like how many movies you have to be in if you're an actor? or How long after your debut? Is anyone aware?

I love how his star will be next to his fellow Fabs John and George. Now we just need Paul to join them. Even though the Walk of Fame has become a joke lately with the likes of Ryan Seacrest and the Victoria's Secret Angels having their own stars, it is still a great honor when the person getting it is deserving.

The date and time are not looking good for me, unfortunately--I have a midterm exam the very next day. *facepalm*  >:(  :-\

BTW, I've been hearing online that Paul has been approved for a star already but just hasn't set any of the details yet.
