George Harrison will receive a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

The late Beatle will be honoured at a 2008 induction ceremony, along with Christina Aguilera and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who will also receive stars in their names.

Hollywood‘s honourary mayor, Johnny Grant, said that these artists were chosen “for a combination of professional achievement and community involvement.”

The Hollywood Walk of Fame runs along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Los Angeles and is embedded with the names of more than 2,000 celebrities recognised by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry.
