London: Fans paid emotional tributes to late rock legend David Bowie yesterday, the first anniversary of his death. A blonde girl wept as her friend drew a heart with lipstick on a Bowie mural in his native neighbourhood of Brixton in south London, where thousands gathered a year ago to sing, dance and cry for their hero.
"Gone but never forgotten", "All the days of my life I owe you" and "RIP David my hero my idol" read some of the emotional inscriptions scrawled on the wall.
"He changed the face of music," said Roger Rowley, an actor and musician who travelled down from Leeds in northern England to attend a vigil by the mural. "I've learnt more from Bowie as an artist as from anyone else. He's eternal," he said. expectations. He was absolutely wonderful!"
