David Bowie honoured with plaque outside his Berlin home

“We can be heroes, just for one day” reads the tribute, which honours the ‘Berlin Trilogy’ albums Bowie recorded in the 1970s.

Between the years 1976-1978, David Bowie took up residence in the Schöneberg district of Berlin. In this time, he released three of his most celebrated albums - 1977’s ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes’, and 1979’s ‘Lodger’.

This week, a plaque has been installed outside Bowie’s former home - which he shared with Iggy Pop at the time - to commemorate his work on ‘The Berlin Trilogy’.

The plaque, which can be seen below, comes with the quote: “We can be heroes, just for one day.”
