The title could be a series in itself. One woman who is up with the Goddesses of ancient history and folklore must be the one and only Catherine Bush or "Kate Bush" to us mere mortals. I am sure Stevie Nick's could be mentioned in the same vein. I just about being a goddess but she's certainly made her mark on "Prog" Rock.
Like myself she's half English and half Irish. Kate or Catherine was born in Bexleyheath in Kent. A family friend was David Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame and he heard the young musical prodigy and he recorded her. Very soon she made her first single at the tender age of eighteen or nineteen:"Wuthering Heights" and it reached number one in the singles charts in Blighty.
The song is an absolute classic in both literature and musical terms. Look at her eyes and expressions in the video. Kate just seems to look into the cameras and not at the audience. Sheer professionalism. Talk about an old head on young shoulders. She absolutely captivates the audience with her banshee like ways. I never get tired of her early stuff.
I also spotted this video of her on Irish television. She looks to be wearing the same clothes she wore on Top of the Pops. I am joking.
