Music history was made in Berlin when the singer wrote three of his iconic albums Low (1977), Lodger (1979) and Heroes (1977). His inspiration came from West Berlin's 1970's sub-culture and the city's abundant cultural history. It definitely shows the Berlin that David Bowie knew and certainly loved.
