But plans for a glamorous riverside of "Glasgow's Greats" have been dropped more than three years after they were approved by city leaders in a blaze of publicity.
City officials only admitted they had done nothing to make the scheme happen after they were quizzed by opposition leader Graeme Hendry.
By now they were supposed to have organised a panel of experts and councillors to decide who should be honoured.
They were also expected to have laid the first batch of £6000 plaques by the Clyde at Glasgow Green.
Eventually the Walk of Fame was to have gone all the way to the SECC.
Former city SNP leader James Dornan – now in the Scottish Parliament – first came up with the idea for a walk of fame some years before 2009 and Mr Hendry's party claimed some credit for the scheme, although it was backed by ruling Labour.
Today Mr Hendry said: "The Glasgow's Greats scheme was a good idea when it was first proposed by James Dornan MSP and it was a good idea when the Administration approved its implementation.
"For the council to simply ignore or forget to implement a decision is unacceptable and will leave the public wondering how many other decisions have just been forgotten about?"
The Walk of Fame was expected to cost an initial £120,000 – although officials were hopeful of getting sponsorship.
Glasgow City Council today said the Walk of Fame had been cancelled by a former director of development and regeneration, Gerry Gormal.
A spokesman said: "The Glasgow's Greats proposal budget was not used (decision taken two years ago) as a saving by the council, and the financial resources were then redirected to allow Townhead Village Hall to be developed."
