'Weird Al' Yankovic is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles

Grammy-winning musical satirist 'Weird Al' Yankovic is joined by fans David Rossi (L) and Vicki DeVries, who takes a tumble during an unveiling ceremony honoring him with the 2,643rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles on August 27, 2018. The installation results, in large part, from Rossi's 15-year campaign by the musicianÕs devoted fans to crowdsource the support and funds to make it happen. In 2005, armed with the $15,000 a star cost at that time, they submitted their first nomination of the artist to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. RossiÕs 2005 application was rejected, as were his subsequent ones, for a decade. The cost is now $40,000. Photo by Jim Ruymen/UPI
