Berlin Pays Tribute To David Bowie With Commemorative Plaque

(Radio.com) David Bowie recorded a trilogy of his most important albums in Berlin: Heroes, Low and Lodger. Now, the city of Berlin has paid tribute to their iconic source with a commemorative plaque.

A fellow "lodger" during his stay in then-West Germany was Iggy Pop, who Bowie complained seldom did grocery shopping. Bowie had moved to the city when drug addiction derailed his creative process in the United Kingdom, and he sought a fresh start.

The albums were recorded between 1977 and 1979 and form a critical section of the late Bowie's discography. The apartment building where Iggy and Bowie lived together is a rather unassuming structure that has received countless visitors through the years. Now it's marked for posterity with a plaque quoting the chorus of "Heroes": "We can be heroes, just for one day." See photos here.
