Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush
In Her Own Words
Part II: The Story
- Edition 2 - March 1, 1992
- This part contains all the quotes I could find relating to the story
of Kate's life. Please note that this section contains mainly quotes relating
to specific events and time periods. Most biographies attempt to fill out their
story by adding quotes that attempt to tell what kind of person they were by
giving their feelings on certain subjects. This section has little of that as
that is usually subjective. Most quotes relating to Kate's feelings on
particular subjects (people, places, things, emotions, influences, etc.) are
contained in ``Part III - Subjects''
- Even though this is ordered chronologically, it is in no way a
complete chronology of Kate's life as I have included only those events that I
could find a quote for. Many well known events are not included simply because
I couldn't find a quote relating to them. This works out well as Kate would
obviously try to talk about events that are most important to her. Those
interested in a chronology of Kate's public life are referred to the book
``Kate Bush Complete'' and to the the beginning of The Garden, which is
included with most versions of Cloudbusting.
- Most of these quotes were given after the event they describe. It is
important to realize however that some were given before, and some were given
during the event. When a quote is given during I have preceded on the same line
with a capitalized description and a colon, as in AFTER CONCERT:Quote. I have
not attempted, however, to quote all of Kate's thank you's, and other ``live''
public comments. Generally they are recorded only when they are particularly
relevant or interesting.
- Also note that I have not included dates for most of the events,
even though these dates are often well known. I did this because Kate herself
rarely mentions dates and I wanted this to have a ``Kate feel'' to it. This
makes it slightly more difficult to find a quote on an individual event, so I
am considering including dates on the next version.
