Buried in the Stars

What do the following have in common?

Bonnie Raitt and Britney Spears

Alice Cooper and Aretha Franklin

Elvis Presley and Engelbert Humperdinck

Carlos Santana and Celine Dion

Lefty Frizzell and Lawrence Welk

John Lennon and Johnny Mathis

Jimi Hendrix and Janet Jackson

Robert Goulet and Rod Stewart

Mitch Miller and Motley Crue

Olivia Newton-John and Ozzy Osbourne

Tom Petty and Tony Orlando

All of these—and many others—all have their “stars” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This week they were joined by The Doors. Which puts them in the company of the likes of Liberace and Anne Murray.

By the way, if you’ve got a sufficiently convincing story and $25K, you, too, may be able to secure your own star. Yes, a bit more than that outfit that will name a star after you and put it in a book in the patent office, but just imagine. Dogs, bums and other creatures will get to urinate all over you at will. But then again, not all of us are Kenny G, Kenny Loggins or Kenny Rodgers [sic].
