As the world mourns the late David Bowie, who passed away on January 10th after suffering from cancer, tributes continue to roll in—especially from his music industry comrades. One of the latest and most poignant comes from the notoriously private Kate Bush, the idiosyncratic musician of the late ‘70s and ‘80s. Speaking to The Guardian, she writes:"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 wassogood. 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.”

We couldn’ t agree more—as the first contributing editor of V, Bowie was an artist especially close to our hearts.
