David changed my life... And after moving to London in 2003, one of the first things to do was to go for pilgrimage to see this house...long before going to see the house of parliament... Its nice to share this experience with other people... I didnt expect it (claudio)

The street was not easy to find, but for a real Bowie-fan... At last I stood in front of a very smart house, enjoyed the feeling and - of course - took a photo. I am same age as "Ziggy" and I just had to see the first address of the man who owns a little piece of my heart. Greetings from an Austrian girl! (Gerlinde Wielander)
