Fun Fact: My father-in-law worked on the Blues Brothers. He was one of the guys driving the trains back and forth outside the window of their apartment.
Interesting. He had an "elevated" position, huh?
The Blues Brothers helped me to learn the address for Wrigley Field. When, in Elwood's apartment, Jake asks Elwood how they can get the band back together after the police have his address, Elwood replies that he lied on the license renewal and listed his address as "1060 West Addison." Jake frowns for a moment, then replies, "1060 West Addison? That's Wrigley Field."
Not to get too far off topic but by mentioning Obi-Wan and Yoda, their themes popped into my mind. Then I thought of John Williams. Then I thought, it's too bad there isn't a Hall of Fame for him. Or at least not a notable one. If there's a genre of music I know, it's film scores.
I also just remembered he doesn't have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Maybe this site should do a "Not on the Hollywood Walk of Fame" list.
My understanding is that anyone can nominate a candidate, but that candidate has to confirm agreement with the nomination. Also, the $30,000 can be paid by anyone willing to spring for it and not necessarily by the candidate. This would explain how Chuck Berry got his star--I can't see him sticking a crowbar in his wallet for 30 grand for a star in the ground.
Keeping with rock and roll, to my knowledge, the Kinks are the only artists ever to write a song about the Hollywood Walk of Fame: "Celluloid Heroes."
