David Bowie’s passing statement from Kate Bush

There have been some loving touching statements from some of Bowie’s long time collaborators like Tony Visconti Brian Eno and from one of Bowie’s own musical hero’s Scott Walker but the statement that had the most affect on me was the one made by Kate Bush printed by the Guardian.

Kate Bush has paid tribute to David Bowie in a rare public statement printed by the Guardian this weekend. Read her remembrance 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.
