Former ELO drummer Bev Bevan is to be the next celebrity honoured on the Broad Street Walk of Stars in Birmingham.
The musician from Sparkhill was also a founder member of The Move and had success with Black Sabbath and ELO Part II.
Bev, who presents a radio show on BBC WM, said he felt "very honoured".
Other local celebrities on the Walk of Stars include Julie Walters, Jasper Carrott and Lenny Henry.
Bev Bevan's music career started with a stint with Denny Laine in his group Denny Laine and The Diplomats, then with Carl Wayne and The Vikings followed by The Move in 1966.
He was then one of the original members of the Electric Light Orchestra.
The musician also presents a show with Jimmy Franks on BBC WM on Tuesday evenings at 10pm.
The announcement that Bev Bevan is to be recognised with a star was made at the Best of Broad Street Awards event on Monday, 17 January 2011.
The drummer made a surprise appearance where he performed alongside Jasper Carrott and Tony Iommi, who have both been honoured on the Walk of Stars.
Talking to Phil Upton on BBC WM Bev said: "They ask you where your preference is for where you'd like this enormous slab to be cemented in, so I've got to have a walk around and find a nice spot somewhere where I think people will walk past it."
Broad Street Manager Mike Olley described Bev as "fantastically talented" and "well deserving of a place on Broad Street".
The Walk of Stars recognises people who have made a significant contribution in areas like music, TV, theatre, sport and business.
Bev Bevan is expected to receive his star at a presentation in the next couple of months.
