Charlie Sheen may have a documented soft spot in his heart for Guns N’ Roses, but that didn’t stop him from becoming the latest mouthpiece to bash Axl Rose. Sheen grabbed an opportunity to poke fun at the sole remaining original member of GN’R at his longtime friend Slash’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony yesterday, where he helped induct the ex-GNR guitarist, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on,” Sheen crowed at the opening of the ceremony, which also featured performances by Slash and Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy, who sings on Slash’s latest solo record, Apocalyptic Love. Since Appetite for Destruction is a perennial strong seller 20-plus years after its release, it’s doubtful Rose will ever stop collecting royalties — perhaps Sheen could have tried a little harder and found a more original joke ripped from recent Axl headlines. And that little dig certainly won’t help the troubled actor see an original lineup GN’R play “Rocket Queen” anytime soon.
Slash’s is the 2,473rd star on the Walk of Fame, according to the AFP.
