On this date in 2010, Tinker Bell receives the 2,418th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the same day as the DVD release of Disney’s Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. Tinker Bell first became a Disney character in the 1953 animated film Peter Pan and was later featured in the opening of the long-running Disney anthology television series. Tinker Bell joins Kermit the Frog, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White and Winnie the Pooh with stars on the Walk of Fame.
On this date in 1987, Snow White is bestowed the 1,850th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Special guests attending include animators Ward Kimball, Marc Davis and Art Babbitt as well as Adriana Caselotti – the original voice of Snow White. Held directly across from Mann’s Chinese Theater, the honor coincides with Snow White’s 50th anniversary. This makes her the third animated character to receive a star (after Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck).

On this date in 2006, Winnie the Pooh celebrates his 80th birthday by receiving the 2,308th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California. Pooh is one of a select few animated characters to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – an honor that is perfectly timed to the global 18-month long Pooh anniversary celebration Disney kicked off in December 2005. (The only other Disney characters to be given a star – as of this day – is Mickey, Donald, and Snow White.) On the same day as the Walk of Fame ceremony, Walt Disney Home Entertainment releases Pooh’s Grand Adventure -The Search for Christopher Robin, for the first time ever on DVD.

Fleetwood Mac are a British–American rock band formed in 1967 in London.
The only original member present in the band is its eponymous drummer, Mick Fleetwood. Despite band founder Peter Green naming the group by combining the surnames of two of his former bandmates (Fleetwood, McVie) from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, bassist John McVie played neither on their first single nor at their first concerts. The keyboardist, Christine McVie, has, to date, appeared on all but two albums, either as a member or as a session musician. She also supplied the artwork for the album Kiln House.
The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green and achieved a UK number one with “Albatross”; and from 1975 to 1987, with more pop-orientation, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, 1977′s Rumours, produced four U.S. Top 10 singles (including Nicks’ song “Dreams”, which was the band’s first and only U.S. number one) and remained at No.1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks, as well as reaching the top spot in various countries around the world. To date the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it the ninth highest selling album of all time.
The band enjoyed more modest success in the intervening period between 1971 and 1974, with the line-up including Bob Welch, and also during the 1990s which saw more personnel changes before the return of Nicks and Buckingham in 1997, and more recently, the departure of Christine McVie.

Carlos Augusto Alves Santana (born July 20, 1947) is a Mexican rock guitarist. Santana became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered rock, salsa and jazz fusion. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. Rolling Stone named Santana number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and 3 Latin Grammy Awards.
