Starman Bowie Honoured at Boozer
- Plaque erected outside London pub in commemoration of the rock star

DAVID BOWIE is to have a plaque erected in his honour outside a South London pub where he played 30 years ago.

The Rat and Parrot in Bromley plan to unveil the plaque in November. Formerly known as The Three Tuns, the pub has a special significance in Bowie's musical history - it was here that he created his alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Although the exact wording of the plaque has not yet been finalised, it is expected to read along the lines of 'David Bowie, Rock Legend, played here 1969-73.' Locals have reportedly already contacted the star to inform him about the memorial.

Unlike the blue plaques erected by the English heritage in memory of the dead, the memorial to Bowie is likely to be red.
