BBC News’ Andy Dangerfield reports:
BLUR, THE WHO and ELVIS PRESLEY are front-runners on a list of musicians to be honoured with Walk Of Fame discs along a route in north London. Camden Town is to be officially twinned with Hollywood to create its very own Music Walk Of Fame. The first 30 discs will be laid down this summer, organisers said.
It will celebrate the world’s greatest musicians, with further discs and an AMY WINEHOUSE statue to be unveiled in September – to mark her 30th birthday.
Front runners likely to appear on the first discs are an eclectic collection of artists including hip-hop DJ pioneer GRANDMASTER FLASH, jazz poet GIL SCOTT-HERON, R&B group SOUL II SOUL, and Camden’s very own MADNESS.
Rock veterans LED ZEPPELIN and legendary crooner FRANK SINATRA are also likely to appear on the list, organisers said. Concerts and special events will be held after all unveilings with tribute gigs for artists who have passed away.
