I was watching TV tonight and there were programmes about Kate Bush. Kate Bush, along with Steeleye Span, Genesis and a few others, were the soundtrack to my teen years and Kate Bush was (and is) amazing. Like Karen Carpenter, she has a voice of an angel and is a genius too. I was happily indulging in the glory that is Kate Bush when a horrible thought entered my mind. Why are they showing these programmes? ….. OMG she is dead!
A few seconds googing later and I see that she is doing some London concerts and that must be the reason for the replaying of these programmes about her since she has been lying low for some time (I am the master of understatement).
Kate Bush, most famous for her debut Wuthering Heights, has ploughed her own furrow throughout her career and her music is all the more important for being what seems to be what she wants to do rather than trying to please the masses. And as a result she has pleased millions. And me.
Long live Kate!
