BOWIE HONORED AT TRIDENT STUDIOS

A David Bowie plaque has arrived at London’s Trident Studios, where the late legend recorded Hunky Dory and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust. It was elected by BBC Local Radio as part the Beeb's country-wide celebration of music, BBC Music Day, yesterday (6/15).

The plaque was unveiled by singer songwriter Billy Bragg and Bowie’s lifelong friend, painter and designer George Underwood, who also designed some of his album covers.

Said Bragg: “David Bowie was the greatest of the London boys that came out of the ‘60s. In 1971, he turned into something strange and curious—Ziggy Stardust. It’s great to commemorate this spot with a blue plaque, so that everyone who loves these records can gaze up in wonder at Trident Studios.”

Underwood added: “I remember going in and out of Trident Studios when David was recording, as he often liked company in the studio. Knowing David, he would be pleased about the plaque, but he would also make a witty remark about it! I’m sure he’d be very chuffed.”

Following Bowie’s, there will be 47 new blue plaques to commemorate people or places that have influenced the musical landscape across the country.
