Heartless Vandals Destroyed David Bowie’s Memorial Plaque

So sad.

A memorial plaque to late music legend David Bowie has been destroyed.

The city of Berlin put the plaque up last month to honour the musician. It was specifically hung on the building that he and Iggy Pop had lived in during the 1970s.

Fortunately, multiple copies of the plaque were made in the event of damage or theft – though, it is quite sad that the replacement has to be used so shortly after the unveil.

Consequence Of Sound reports that the plaque read, porcelain plaque reads (roughly translated from German), β€œIn this house lived from 1976 to 1978 David Bowie 8.1.1947 – 10.1.2016. In this time arose the albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger. They go by the Berlin Trilogy in the history of music. We can be heroes, just for one day.”

Police are currently investigating the crime.
