Kate Bush has paid tribute to the late David Bowie in a rare written statement. He passed away, aged 69, last week. Just two days prior, he released his final album, ‘Blackstar’ on his birthday,
In a short remembrance piece that appeared in The Guardian, Kate Bush wrote:
“David Bowie had everything. He was intelligent, imaginative, brave, charismatic, cool, sexy and truly inspirational both visually and musically. He created such staggeringly brilliant work, yes, but so much of it and it was so good. There are great people who make great work but who else has left a mark like his? No one like him.
I’m struck by how the whole country has been flung into mourning and shock. Shock, because someone who had already transcended into immortality could actually die. He was ours. Wonderfully eccentric in a way that only an Englishman could be. Whatever journey his beautiful soul is now on, I hope he can somehow feel how much we all miss him.”
