David Bowie Honored Outside Of Berlin Home

The home in Germany’s Schöneberg district where Bowie recorded his much lauded Berlin trilogy, Low (1977), Heroes (1977), and Lodger (1979), is getting some recognition.

According to Consequence of Sound the house will receive a porcelain memorial plaque: “Permanently installed at Hauptstraße 155, the porcelain memorial plaque reads (roughly translated from German), “In this house lived from 1976 to 1978 David Bowie 8.1.1847 – 10.1.2016. In this time arose the albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger. They go by the Berlin Trilogy in the history of music.” The message ends with a quote from the chorus of “Heroes”, “We can be heroes, just for one day.”

Bowie also shared residence with Iggy Pop during this time. In interviews, Bowie always said that his “Heroes” inspirations came from producer Tony Visconti as he and his girlfriend shared a romantic moment against the Berlin Wall.
