Amy Winehouse - Music Walk of Fame set for Camden Town

Plans are going ahead for a Music Walk of Fame in Camden Town, north London.

It will be Britain's answer to the famed Hollywood tribute to those who've made an impact in the film industry, and Camden's will honour music's greatest performers with a stone disc.

With names like Madonna, Radiohead and Public Enemy touted for potential stars to be included, the wait begins for the official announcement in May.

However, previous resident Amy Winehouse - who passed away in 2011 aged 27 - will be honoured.

Her father Mitch told the Independent on Sunday: ''I think she would have genuinely been excited by this. That stone is going to be there for ever. That means Amy's going to be there for ever, which is lovely. She lived in Camden, she died in Camden. She was Camden through and through.''

The idea arose six years ago when 10-year-old Adam Bennett, now 16, visited the famous monument in Los Angeles with his father.

Lee, a music impresario and now CEO of the Music Walk of Fame, said: ''It was important I got their [Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's] blessing. When you think of Walk of Fame you think of Hollywood. We'll be the only other recognised walk of fame in the world.''
