Today at 11:30, the West Hollywood Walk of Fame will grow by one, when Rick Starr’s plaque will be added to the installation.
The walk is a tribute to life and a promise to those lost to continue our commitment to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS, according to its website.
Starr died last July, according to WeHoville. He had worked at Hollywood Sheet Music for years until the store shut down in 2009.
Says WeHoville; “Starr also was known for Rick’s Picks, the shows he hosted at the Gardenia Supper Club at 7066 Santa Monica Blvd., east of La Brea, which is the longest-running cabaret supper club in the United States.”
According to a fan Facebook page, today is Starr’s birthday.
“Rick's most earnest desire when he knew that the end was near was that he be remembered with a plaque on the West Hollywood Memorial Walk,” a Facebook post says.
The public unveiling of the plaque is at 12:30 p.m.
