Guns 'N Roses famed guitarist Slash took his place in the pantheon today with the dedication of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since Slash's world is that of rock 'n' roll, it's no surprise this wasn't the most polite of ceremonies, mostly thanks to speaker Charlie Sheen, who worked in some quips and jabs about Slash's former G'NR bandmate Axl Rose. "It's quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on," offered Sheen, according to TMZ.

"Slash covered his face to hide his laughter during the Axl crack," notes Rolling Stone, adding, "but if the odds of a Guns N' Roses [reunion] were a trillion-to-one before today, they just got a bit slimmer."

More Sheen wit: "This star is going to be stepped on more than the coke we did in the 80s." Zing! But, hey, Charlie, are you sure you didn't mean "last week"?

Here's some video of the ceremony with Sheen and Slash:
