    Nice to meet you, Peter. (officially)

    The link is broken, unfortunately. BUT! I’ve read the article five times already and I must say it was pleasure to read and laugh! At last a postivie, fan-written article about Kate.

    What made me a bit concerned was the last paragraph which starts ‘no Kate Bush, no PJ Harvey’ (etc.). Ok, it’s semi-true. Or not at all. Even the bulb was being invented in more than 2 places in the world simultaneously. 😉 However, I do share this view a bit or at least I wanted to! But life changed it when I told my teenage pupils that without Kate Bush there would be no Lady Gaga… What a slip! I’ll repent for that for the rest of my life… 😡
