The German capital mourned British rock legend David Bowie Monday. Berlin had helped re-launch his career and the performer is now credited with playing a part in toppling its despised Wall. Berlin never forgot Bowie and his glamorous ghost haunts the now-reunited capital, where locals laid bunches of flowers and candles in front of his former building at Hauptstrasse 155 in the Schoeneberg district.As tributes poured in, the German Foreign Ministry credited him with having a hand in knocking down the Berlin Wall."Good-bye David Bowie," it tweeted, with a link to a video of Bowie performing "Heroes".
