June 2, 2010 – Composer and Disney Legend Randy Newman Earns Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
“I love Randy Newman. And not just physically. I love his music. Who could resist a man who looks like a dentist, writes like Voltaire, sings like a frog on heroin – and breaks just like a little girl.” – Actor Eric Idle
On June 2, 2010, Randy Newman was the newest inductee in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The singer-composer and Disney Legend, well known for his songs such as “I Love L.A.” and “Short People,” as well for his work with Pixar films starting with Toy Story, was honored before the release of Toy Story 3, which was to be released on June 18 featuring a score by Newman. Newman was joined at the ceremony by John Lasseter, and actor and admirer Eric Idle.
