Bryan Adams Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Congratulations to Bryan Adams! The 51-year-old rocker's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was unveiled yesterday in front of the Musician's Institute on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The singer is thrilled to get the honor, and he admitted he would often admire the Walk of Fame in his younger days but never dreamed that one day his own name would be on it.

At the ceremony, the Canadian star said: "I remember being in Hollywood at the age of 16 and marveling at the stars.

"The idea of being part of it never entered my mind. It was too far-fetched. Today, I'm humbled at the induction of my name. It's fantastic."

The Grammy Award-winning musician is expecting his first child with his partner, his personal assistant Alicia Grimaldi, in May. He was watched by fellow Canadian and champion hockey player Wayne Gretzky as he was presented with the 2,435th star.

Wayne was delighted to see his friend receive the accolade but he was less than impressed with the rainy weather on the day.

The sportsman said: "This is typical. I've been to an outdoor concert of Bryan's where it was pouring rain and watched him perform his magic.

"[Bryan is] a very humble Canadian. I'm very proud to say he's Canadian."

However, the singer was prepared for the wet weather.

On Sunday, he tweeted: "Gonna bring my surf board to the ceremony tomorrow just in case the rain continues."
