Plaque Commemorating David Bowie Destroyed in Berlin

A plaque that was installed at David Bowie's one time residence to commemorate the late legend has been destroyed after only three weeks of being in place. Bowie, whilst creating his trilogy of albums, including; Low, Heroes and Lodger, stayed at the address with friend and fellow artist Iggy Pop between 1976-1978.

The plaque had been unveiled at a ceremony held for fans, friends and political figures to attend at the end of August. Whilst usually under a blanket of strict legislative procedures put in place to ensure the figure was of great historical significance (A waiting period of 5 years), Mayor of Berlin Michael Muller immediately gave the green light to install the 3400 euro plate.

At it's inception makers of the plaque KPM- The Royal Porcelain factory - stated that if it were to ever be stolen, vandalised or destroyed they would replace it within a period of 24 hours. The Berlinger Morgenpost have confirmed that the company have honoured their word and will in fact be creating a new plaque.

Bowie died of cancer in January early this year following an 18-month struggle with cancer. His last ever recordings are set to be released in October on the Lazarus Cast Album, featuring a number of tracks from Bowie's off-Broadway show Lazarus.
