The death of Bowie — a South London native who was born on Stansfield Road, yards away from where his mural stands — was the inspiration behind an impromptu street party that look over the centre of SW2 last night.
We headed down this morning to visit the memorial for a second time.
“Goodbye Thin White Duke
“David Bowie you were the soundtrack to our lives
Sonia & Dave”
“I could fall asleep at night as a rock n roll star
I will miss you very much
“Keep shining Starman
Love Big Jay x”
“My mum danced with you in ‘74
I love you just like she does
“Who said you could leave?
We may not have known you personally but we certainly knew and understood your music.
Taken far too soon
From one of your millions & millions of fans x”
You make Brixton proud
You make London proud
You make a generation
In death you make everyone prouder
“RIP DAVID BOWIE
I was an (sic) will carry on to be inspired by your art and music. Rest in peace LOVE YOU FOREVER xxx YOUR BIGGEST FAN DAYNA DIXON”
“He will always LIVE…
…Gracias from Mexico”
“I thought I saw
You in an icecream
And long RIP”

“Have a nice trip Starman!
Be Ziggy and Major Tom stay with you!

Thin White Duke
A cover of teen magazine Jackie from Thursday 16th March 1974, bearing the inscription “Thanks for the fashion, a huge inspiration”
“The stars look very different today”
“There is an eternity out there
Now is time to cross the misty space
Captain of my inspiration
Melody of my poetry
You made all the dust become STARDUST
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Now is time to leave the candlesa
To you like stars on the ground
Planet Earth is sad but forever thankful to you.
And there is nothing I can do.
From: Argentinean poet Belen Prado
To: David Bowie
