ALICE IN CHAINS Members To Speak At HEART's 'Hollywood Walk Of Fame' Ceremony

ALICE IN CHAINS' Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez and actress Rita Wilson will be the guest speakers when Ann and Nancy Wilson of HEART receive the 2,481st star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on September 25 in front of the Musician's Institute at 6752 Hollywood Boulevard.

Producer of the Hollywood Walk Of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez commented: "This location is a coveted spot for many rock 'n' rollers and these ladies will join the likes of bands JOURNEY and MÖTLEY CRÜE, who also have stars on that property. We are thrilled with this latest star addition as many young, aspiring female rockers look up to these legendary ladies of rock 'n' roll."

HEART's joint autobiography — "Kicking And Dreaming: A Story Of Heart, Soul And Rock & Roll", will be published on September 18. Their new studio album, "Fanatic", will be released on October 2.

Inez has toured as part of HEART's lineup and appeared on the band's 2003 "Alive In Seattle" concert disc.

In a 2006 interview, Inez told Launch about the enormous respect that ALICE IN CHAINS and others have for HEART's Ann and Nancy Wilson. "As far as Seattle goes, they are rock royalty," he said. "It's just amazing songwriting and just stood the test of time over the years, some timeless music. Just the people that showed up for [the 2006 taping of VH1 Classic's 'Decades Rock Live!' that paid tribute to HEART] is amazing, people from Carrie Underwood to Phil Anselmo from PANTERA and everybody in between. You got your Duff McKagans playing and Gretchen Wilson, and that's a testament of the respect that these girls really carry in this business."
