    A wall painting at failing GC?

    Oh my God. :facepalm:

    He deserves so much better. Like a statue at the R&R HOF.

    Absolutely insulting.

    Not diggin'. It's a ghetto throw-over. Sorry DOOMs.

    He deserves something way more significant. I'm not saying a statue like the Lincoln Memorial, but something stone, copper, marble, concrete, ...along those lines.

    Had he died in the '80's or '90's I think things would have been different.

    The Hollywood GC really is a musical cultural building. Not a bad idea as he should be memorialized . Could it be better ? Sure

    By the way I believe that Hollywood guitar center was featured in the movie “Pic of Destiny” Ben Stiller scene.

    Well, it's not exactly a bronze statue, but how many guitarists get a mural at GC, AND an action figure?

    not sure what you expect for a guitar shop...

    These are all city statues. VH would probably be in Pasadena. If Hollywood put a statue of everyone famous, there
    d be a lot of statues, & they'd mean nothing, in the scheme of things...
