Kate Bush on David Bowie: ‘He had everything. Who else has left a mark like his?’

'He created such staggeringly brilliant work,' Bush says

Kate Bush is the latest artist to pay tribute to the late David Bowie, who passed away earlier this month.

Bowie died on January 10, two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his final studio album ‘Blackstar’. He had been suffering from cancer for 18 months prior to his death.

Now, speaking to The Guardian, Bush has described Bowie as a one-of-a-kind talent who “had everything”.


“He was intelligent, imaginative, brave, charismatic, cool, sexy and truly inspirational both visually and musically,” Bush said. “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.”


She continued: “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.”

Meanwhile, David Bowie is expected to spend a second week at the top spot of the UK Albums Chart, according to mid-week figures.

Bowie posthumously topped the chart with ‘Blackstar’ last week (January 15) and now the Official Chart Company has revealed that Bowie is currently over 28,000 chart sales ahead of his next nearest competitor, Adele with ’25’.
