Tributes continue to flood in, in memory of the late, great David Bowie - with Kate Bush among the latest to honour her fellow legend. 

It's been a week of mourning since the Thin White Duke passed away aged 69 after sadly losing his battle with cancer. This weekend his amazing final album Blackstar top the charts around the world - gaining him his first No.1 in America. 

Now, the elusive goddess Kate Bush has shared her memories of Bowie. 

"David Bowie had everything. He was intelligent, imaginative, brave, charismatic, cool, sexy and truly inspirational both visually and musically," Bush told The Guardian. "He created such staggeringly brilliant work, yes, but so much of it and it was so good. There are great people who make great work but who else has left a mark like his? No one like him."

Bush continued: "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."
