It all started with
one fan. Dave "Elvis" Rossi
wrote a note on the forums at WOWAY.
"While I was in the L.A. area earlier this week and I stopped
by the Hollywood Walk Of Fame to check out some of the stars. It was absolutely
so cool to walk along and read all the names of the great movie stars and
tv stars and musicians, etc. Anyone who's been there can attest to this.
As I was reading some names, I got to thinking Al should
have a star. He surely has made as much as an impact as some of the names
I read. I mean, even the Rugrats have a star!!
So, now I've done some research and I believe we can get
Al that star that he rightfully deserves.
Al easily meets all the qualifications (5 years longevity,
contribution to society, etc.) so I feel if we nominate him, he'll be accepted.
I can't imagine Al refusing to find time in his busy schedule to accept the
star, so the only significant obstacle is raising $15,000 for the star."
And a campaign was started!
