We have all heard about the Hollywood Walk of Fame which is located in Los Angeles, now what we are about to talk about is the Music Walk of Fame but most definitely not in Hollywood but rather in Camden Town in London.
First, the Music Walk of Fame is a parodical imitation of the original Hollywood Walk of Fame that honours celebrities in the music, film and entertainment industry of Hollywood.
Second the choice of Music Walk of Fame as the name is based on the history of the location for this new attraction, Camden Town.
The musical history of the town goes way back to 1960s as the town is known as the root home and starting point of many musical stars and bands known today in Hollywood and the world. According to the founder of the project Music Walk of Fame, Lee Bennett, the town has been responsible for starting and nurturing many stars over the years such as Cold Play, Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder and many others.
The unveiling of the first stone which was done by the British Band The Who, and who have the first stone dedicated to them also spoke about the importance of this monumental attraction which also holds a great deal of historical value.
According to the founder of the project Bennett, the plan is to unveil about 20 more stones per year while also planning to include a virtual reality element to the Walk.
The selection of the awardees will be unlike that of Hollywood, for the public will be the ones voting and choosing from the music industry those they wish to have on the Walk. And Bennett also hopes that in time, the Music Walk of Fame stone will become one of the greatest accolades of popular music as so far music has been one of the few things that has brought unity and joy to the world despite the many things going on.
