It took some extra work to polish John Lennon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in time for his birthday Wednesday (10/9). Over the weekend, someone drew a smiley face, a mushroom, added and a quote from the Grateful Dead song Deal on the embedded star near the Capitol Records tower. Whoever was responsible hardly did lyrisist Robert Hunter a favor by scrawling, '...it cost a lot 2 win and even more 2 lose. U @ me got to spend sum time' on the tribute. One alteration might have made John smile. The culprit also converted the 'O' in the former Beatle's first and last name into peace signs.
