Steve Tyrell - Hal David Honoured With Walk Of Fame Star

Celebrated songwriter Hal David was honoured by iconic musicians Steve Tyrell and Paul Williams on Friday (14Oct11) as he became the oldest celebrity to land a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 90-year-old lyricist and longtime musical partner of Burt Bacharach unveiled his plaque in front of The Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard as friends and family looked on.
He says, "From time to time, I found myself stargazing on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, never dreaming that one day one of the stars would be mine.
"My lovely wife Eunice is excited, my grandchildren Adam and Sara are excited and what do you know, I'm more excited than they are."
Williams referenced David's tracks Walk On By and The Look of Love as he paid tribute to his pal during the ceremony.
He said, "This is a star that every time I Walk On By this star, I will get The Look of Love in my eye that will be deep and from the very bottom of my heart.
"Long after Hal and I are gone, when people are walking by this star, remembering his wonderful songs, which they will still be singing, young songwriters will be making a proper living because of the kind of work that Hal David did on their behalf for the last 40 years."
Tyrell added, "Raindrops have fallen on all our heads, but only one man could turn that into a song that became a national treasure."
