The Mayor of Berlin Michael Mueller today unveiled a plaque reading ‘David Bowie (1947-2016) lived in this house 1976-1978’.

He added: ‘With David Bowie we are quite certain he will remain an important symbol for Berlin for years to come.’

Has London got a Bowie memorial?

  • George Guthry says:

    Berlin has a mayoral election next week, Müller is only doing what he thinks might help keep him his job.

  • John says:

    Does London need a Bowie memorial?

    • Frederick West says:

      Not really. Following all the griefjacking after his death I’m surprised that there aren’t plaques everywhere. ‘The soundtrack to my life’ – that sort of thing, everyone said it even though half of them weren’t even old enough.
