10 things Ray Bradbury and musician Nikki Sixx have in common: #4 - Hollywood Walk of Fame

#4. Both SF&F author Ray Bradbury and Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx are stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ray Bradbury received the 2,193rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002 for his contributions to literature, film, and television. "I am truly grateful to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," said Bradbury at the ceremony. "I received so much inspiration from this city that it is a wonderful feeling to be a permanent part of my hometown. I dedicate this landmark to all of my family, friends and fans that have encouraged me throughout the years and I want to thank Mayor Hahn, the City of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for this honor."

Nikki Sixx does not have his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but Mötley Crüe received the 2,301st star in 2006 for its contribution to music. "We're across the street from the Erotica Museum and Frederick's of Hollywood. This is a perfect place for us to be," Sixx told an estimated 600 screaming fans at the ceremony.
