CHARLIE Sheen hit out against Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose as Slash was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist attended a ceremony outside the Hard Rock Cafe in Los Angeles for the unveiling of the 2473rd star where he was feted by friends including Charlie Sheen, music producer Robert Evans and radio host Jim Ladd.

The London-born musician said: "I've been a part of the Hollywood fabric for a long time and to actually be appreciated by the city of Hollywood is a huge, huge honour.

"And so I want to thank everybody for this; it's unbelievable.

"This is a really special acknowledgement ... it's the coolest thing you could ever get.

"I'm such a part of this scenery. I went to school here, and started playing guitar here, literally 100 yards down the street ... I got a very technicolour education up here."

Charlie made a heartfelt speech in honour of his friend but also used the opportunity to take a swipe at Slash's former Guns N' Roses bandmate Axl Rose.

He joked: "It's quite fitting, I think, that Slash is getting a star on the very street that Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on.

"This man here, through his music and through his person, through his compassion, has changed the way that I look at the world forever.

"That can only happen through true artistry."

Slash spoke about his friendship with Charlie, who has bounced back with new TV show Anger Management after being fired from sitcom Two and a Half Men due to his excessive partying and slurs against the comedy's creator last year.

The 46-year-old rocker said: "Over the last few years I've gotten clean, you know, and he's actually doing a lot better than anybody gives him credit for.

"He had his moment there, which he is still sort of living down.

"But the thing I love about Charlie is ... he just does what he does and his integrity is intact."

Slash - whose real name is Saul Hudson - was joined at the ceremony by his wife Perla Ferrar and their two sons.
