David Bowie fans crowdfunding to build statue, quarter of the way there

David Bowie fans crowdfunding to build statue, quarter of the way there

Fans of David Bowie are trying to crowdfund the erecting of a statue of the icon.

This coming January will make it one year since his passing, and Bowie fans are hoping to build a statue in the town of Aylesbury, North of London. This is due to the fact he debuted 'Hunky Dory' and 'Ziggy Stardust' songs at the local Friars club. The market square is actually referenced in the opening line of 'Five Years'.

Sculptor Andrew Sinclair has designed the bronze statue, which would include a working soundsystem and play songs throughout the day into evening. At the point of publishing, it has raised £26,444 of its £100,000 target.

It is confirmed that, should the campaign be successful, Holy Holy, the band lead by Bowie producer Tony Visconti, ‘Spiders From Mars’ drummer Woody Woodmansey and Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, will play a set of Bowie covers at Friars Aylesbury in April 2017.
