David Bowie was honoured with a stone on Camden’s Music Walk Of Fame.
Bowie’s friends and associates unveiled the stone and honoured his life and legacy. Spiders From Mars drummer, Woody Woodmansey was among those who paid tribute and unveiled the stone. He told Reuters, “It’s another landmark for his legacy basically music, the films, the videos, and everything he did for the culture.”
“He was just an amazing artist – 24/7 he was on the job and it always showed in the products. To be able to move through all the different characters and the musical genres that he did and pull it off, I don’t think anybody’s achieved that ever, [he was] one of a kind, unique.”

After COVID-related delays to new stones being put, Lee Bennett, the founder of the Walk Of Fame, claimed that the release of the new Bowie film ‘Moonage Daydream’ was the ‘catalyst’ for the series to “come back with David and unlock the rest of the schedule”.
“[There was] no one better to come back with,” he said. Of any artist that we can think of in the last 50 years, the chameleon that David was, how he touched many generations, lives, it just all collided at once that this [was] the right person to come back with.”

The Brett Morgen-directed David Bowie movie ‘Moonage Daydream’ will only be available in IMAX in September. It’s a full length experiential cinematic voyage that explores Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey.
