Redding Statue Unveiled
A bronze bust of soul singer OTIS REDDING has been unveiled outside the Guitar Center at Hollywood's RockWalk.
The late star's widow Zelma Redding and daughter Karla Redding-Andrews attended the ceremony on Friday (11May07), which was organised to honour all performers at 1967's Monterey International Pop Festival.
The Mamas and the Papas singer Michelle Phillips - the only living member of the '60s folk-rock group - attended the 40th anniversary event.
She says, "I'm a little overwhelmed that I'm really the only one here. I know that I can speak for all of us when I thank all of you very much for being here."
Pianist and songwriter Al Kooper also attended the ceremony.
The RockWalk was established in 1985 to honour musicians who have made a significant contribution to the history of music.
