David Bowie Plaque Stolen In Berlin

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on September 21, 2016

Thieves have stolen a plaque from the wall of David Bowie’s Berlin, Germany home just weeks after it was unveiled.

The memorial, which quoted the late rock icon’s lyrics from his hit Heroes, went missing on Saturday, and local police officials are now investigating what they’re calling an act of vandalism.

Berlin Mayor Michael Mueller unveiled the plaque on the wall of the house Bowie called home from 1976 to 1978, while he worked on the albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger, and produced Iggy Pop’s The Idiot, on August 22.

It read: “David Bowie (1947-2016) lived in this house 1976-1978… We can be heroes, just for one day.”

Mueller told fans gathered at the ceremony, “I think one can say David Bowie and West Berlin had quite a special partnership.”

A replacement plaque is expected to go up in days. The company that produced the plaque had multiple prints made in the event of damage or theft.

Bowie lost his battle with cancer in January. His final recordings, No Plan, Killing A Little Time and When I Met You, will appear on the upcoming Lazarus cast album, which will be released to coincide with the London launch of Bowie’s musical next month.

The show’s star, Michael C. Hall, performed a tribute to the rocker at the 2016 Mercury Prize ceremony in London last week. The late music icon’s final album Blackstar was among the releases nominated for the coveted award.

David Bowie fans have new music to look forward too. Three more songs from the Blackstar sessions will be released on the Lazarus cast soundtrack and the second box set ‘Who Can I Be Now’ will be released through Warner Music this Friday.
