Petition To Name Glasgow Street After David Bowie

15 January 2016, 11:38

Hundreds of people have signed a petition calling for a street in Glasgow to be named after David Bowie

Online campaigners want Duke Street in Dennistoun changed to Thin White Duke Street after the singer died from cancer earlier this week.

David Blair, who is behind the petition, wrote: "David Bowie's passing has seen an outpouring of grief not seen in a long time in the music world. The Starman is, quite simply, one of the greatest artists of all time."

He continued: "As a City of Culture, music capital of the world and in recognition of the fact he played the legendary east-end Barrowland Ballroom (not far from Duke Street) on Tuesday 22nd July 1997, The Yellow Movement would like to see his memory immortalised by changing the street name of Duke Street to Thin White Duke Street."

Heart's Connor Gillies has been speaking to him:

We have also been getting some reaction on Duke Street:

The 69-year-old passed away on Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Bowie released his 25th album on Friday 8 January, to coincide with his 69th birthday, and it remains top of the album charts.

It contains seven songs, including one called Lazarus which starts with the lyrics: "Look up here, I'm in heaven, I've got scars that can't be seen, I've got drama, can't be stolen, everybody knows me now."

Bowie will be honoured in a tribute at next month's Brit awards, and a memorial concert will be held at New York's Carnegie Hall on 31 March.
