Heddon Street in central London will get a new plaque today, marking forty years since Ziggy Stardust was born. David Bowie was photographed in the street for the Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust album cover in 1972, which catapulted him to international fame.
The plaque will be one of only a couple given to fictional characters, such as one for the great detective Sherlock Holmes at 221b Baker Street. Gary Kemp will unveil the plaque in a ceremony later today.
