      I’m thrilled that Rick Springfield has finally been selected to get a star on The Walk of Fame. This is a richly deserved honor that has been a long time coming and couldn’t happened to a more talented individual.

    2. Michelle Passalacqua says:

      I was so happy to hear the news of Rick Springfield. Finally getting his star on the walk of fame , the 13 year old girl in me screamed and ran around in my head .
      Rick has had a huge influence on popular culture for so long now .

    3. Tracy Mallon says:

      Thank you for the long awaited honor of Rick Springfield to receive his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! He truly deserves the recognition for his lifelong accomplishments. You have thrilled many people to the bone! I was honored to have met Rick, and he is very humbled by the attention he continually acquires, worldwide. Many thanks, and much appreciation!

    4. Great to hear about RICK SPRINGFIELD, Deidre Hall, Sally Field, Jessica Lange…and others

    5. Doug Brown says:

      Jack Pierce, who created the iconic monsters (Mummy, Wolf-Man, Frnakenstein’s creature) for Universal in the 1930s and 1940s, was passed over. Pierce’s work is known the world over and has stood virtually unequalled in cinema history. He deserves a star on the Walk!

    6. Debby says:

      I like a lot of the people who are getting their star but Rick Springfield deserved it years ago. Way to go Rick you finally made it

    7. Lisa Lynn says:

      Congratulations Rick Springfield!!!
      You deserve it!!!

    8. Osotru says:

      So happy for Rick Springfield I love his music and he is such a talented person so well derserved

    11. rlstewart76 says:

      Why is Sally Field just now receiving her Star???

    12. Jeffrey Spivak says:

      And yet, Busby Berkeley, the man who changed forever how we look at dance in the movies, and who saved Warner Bros. from complete insolvency still doesn’t have a Walk of Fame star.

      A sad shame.

    13. Really? You don’t think we should give Katy Perry and Kaley Cuoco time to become more than a fad? By that standard Rick Springfield should have had a star in 1984 when he had both a TV history and a best selling album. Orlando Bloom right alongside Liam Neeson? No comparison. Let Orlando sit on his hands a while longer. Matt is hot but are we giving out stars for shirt removal now? And Sally, just like Rick, is way overdue. Like Forrest Gump in the 90’s overdue.

      • Meredith A. Zarth says:

        Right on every point, Jamie. I like Kaley, Katy, Orlando, and Matthew… but WITH Rick and Sally?? It’s crazy. I’ve been a fan of Rick’s a loooong time & signed petitions to get him there, but seeing Sally wasn’t even there yet?!?! It’s all pure insanity. How are these decisions actually made and by whom?

    14. Deena says:

      Congrats! Rick !!!!! A long wait…Well deserved!!!! :-)

    15. Victoria says:

    18. Sandi Long says:

      Yay for Rick Springfield, but the late teen-star, Corey Haim needed some recognition, don’t you think?
