06.04.2019: Hello Again. There he was. Once more.
Howard Carpendale, the one who had started it, back in May 2003. Howie’s hands were the first to be perpetuated in the Walk of Stars. Now he returned, more than 16 years later and just because of one simple reason. The first plaque had been too spoilt and damaged to be repaired. Therefore he had to do it again. When coming back to the Olympic Hall for his performance at the Nacht der Schlagerstars (The Night of Schlager music) he also delivered a second edition of his handprint.
After the ceremony Howie joked about his hope that plaque might last longer than 16 years as he wouldn’t be performing in 2035 anymore. Who knows. Howie forever.
