The world mourned this year following the death of music, art and fashion genius David Bowie on January 10 this year, two days after his 69th birthday.
The singer, who was dubbed the Picasso of pop, was born in Brixton and was known for a stream of hits including 'Starman', 'Space Oddity' and 'Let's Dance' alongside award winning albums.
The star not only appeared on stage as himself, but he also created an alter ego for himself, the world-renowned Ziggy Stardust.
He performed in front of millions of fans all over the world, but perhaps one of his most iconic performances was right here in west London, where he retired his much loved alter ego.
The performance, in 1973 has taken its place in history as The Retirement Gig, as Ziggy played for the crowds one final time in the then Hammersmith Odeon, now the Apollo.
Almost one year on from his death, January 8 would have been Bowie's 70th birthday and in tribute, events are taking place across west London.
