It’s not just Brixton paying tribute.

One of the most acclaimed periods of David Bowie’s career came when he was based in Berlin in the 1970s, releasing the Low, Lodger and Heroes albums.

Bowie fans are currently leaving flowers at Hauptstrasse 155, the location of the flat that Bowie shared with Iggy Pop during his time in Berlin. The German foreign office have already thanked Bowie for his help in bringing down the Berlin wall (his song ‘Heroes’ is about two lovers separated by it).

Tributes are also springing up in Bowie’s birthplace of Brixton. The singer died yesterday following an 18-month battle with cancer.
