David Bowie’s sudden death (to the public anyway) back at the beginning of 2016 was all so terribly sad. It marked the passing of a truly beloved and mold-breaking musician as he lost his battle with liver cancer at the age of 69. It also seemed to ignite a year of cherished celebrities passing away.
Of course, Bowie will always live on through his music and cultural influence, and he’ll also live on in the form of three new blue plaques which were recently unveiled in the UK. The plaques went up as part of BBC Music Day, which saw 47 being installed in total across the country. The three honouring Bowie went up in Maidstone, Hull, and Trident Studios in St Anne’s Court in Soho.
