David Bowie To Be Honoured With Stone On London’s Music Walk Of Fame
David Bowie is set to be honoured with a stone on the Music Walk of Fame in London.
The pioneering musician, who died in 2016, will have a stone laid in his memory on the Camden-based trail that recognises influential artists from around the world.
Bowie’s stone is to be laid opposite Camden Town Tube station, joining stones honouring the likes of The Who, Soul II Soul, Madness and Amy Winehouse.

The Music Walk of Fame was founded by Lee Bennett in 2019 and aims to recognise and celebrate music’s contribution to culture and society. When finally completed, the walk is set to feature over 400 artists, spanning the entire length of pavement from Chalk Farm, all the way to Mornington Crescent.
The Who were the recipients of the first stone, and Madness, who got their stone in a star-studded unveiling by Dizzee Rascal. Amy Winehouse, arguably the most famous name to be associated with Camden was the third artist to receive a star in march 2020.
David Bowie’s stone will be unveiled in a ceremony on September 15, with friends, collaborators and fans expected to pay tribute. Find out more about London’s Walk Of Fame at the official website.
