Kate Bush isn’t known for making too many public statements, but the sad passing of David Bowie has brought about tributes by all sorts of artists. In a remembrance article published by The Guardian, Bush wrote that there was “no one like him” and that “I hope he can somehow feel how much we all miss him.”
Read her full statement below.
“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.”
The Guardian also published tributes from Blondie’s Deborah Harry and Chris Stein, Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar and bassist Gail Ann Doresy, Absolute Beginners director Julien Temple, Lazarus producer Robert Fox, and more. Read the full article here.
