Well anyone who knows me well, knows that Kate Bush is my idol. So it was great news to hear that she’s been honoured by The Queen. There are not many artists in this country are as iconic or revered as her. Each album release is an event in many people’s eyes, though we do have to wait quite some time between pieces of work by her. Well done the powers that be at the palace who formulated the list this year. I did read that Kate was rather surprised about the honour. I can understand that as this has been a long time in coming. I still treasure the day I met her at Bobby Browns Nite-club in Birmingham for the launch of ‘The Hounds Of Love‘ album. I was totally awe-struck and when I spoke to her my voice was all of sudden high-pitched and thereafter I just nodded and smiled.
