CAMDEN TOWN is to get a Hollywood-style walk of fame, which will honour pop music greats linked with the area such as Pink Floyd, Oasis and Amy Winehouse.
Endorsed by the Los Angeles movie-star original, Camden’s will honour music’s greatest performers with a bronze and stone disc, presumably to mimic a vinyl record, set in the pavement. Each disc is set to cost about £500.
Those chosen will be split into different groups: influential artists; innovative artists; unsung heroes; industry types. After a committee has come up with a shortlist, we all get the chance to vote on the Music Walk of Fame’s website.
The shortlist hasn’t been decided yet, but hints have been dropped that among those in the first tranche will be Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, The Doors, Marc Bolan, The Move, Cream, Hawkwind, Blur, Oasis, Pulp, Supergrass, Suede, Madonna, Radiohead and Public Enemy.
The list is to be announced in May.
