Legendary British rock musician David Bowie has been posthumously honored with a star on the Musicians’ Walk of Fame in London, joining music stars The Who, singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse, Madness and Soul II Soul.
The creation in Bowie’s honor was unveiled at a ceremony in his honor, where the music legend’s greatest hits were played.
“This is just one landmark for Bowie’s legacy, considering the prolific music, films, videos and everything this artist has done for culture,” Woody Woodmansey told Reuters.
Woodmansey was a drummer in one of Bowie’s backing ensembles, and had the opportunity to participate in the unveiling of a monument in honor of this artist.
“He was an incredible artist, he was a person who worked non-stop, his day was filled with work, it could be seen in his prolific work. He could represent the different characters and genres of music that he did and perform it , I don’t think anyone has ever achieved that, Bowie was unique, truly unique,” Woodmansey added at the ceremony.
The London Walk of Fame Musicians was founded in 2019, modeled after the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the first laureate was the group “The Who”.
After the great pandemic, which affected the holding of many public events, the unveiling and tribute to Bowie was held for the first time after March 2020
As a reminder, this month also saw the release of a documentary film about the British singer-songwriter David Bowie, entitled “Moonage Daydream”.
