Kate Bush: The Biography by Rob JovanovicI was disappointed with this book. I really thought that itd be more interesting than it was and, frankly, the author really irritated me. Being a Kate Bush fan, I already knew a lot about her - I though I do think this is expected if you want to read her biography. Unfortunately, I didnt really feel that I gained much more insight to Bush than I already had. Im not particularly interested in instruments and studio information, but I thought I could perhaps learn more about how Kate personally felt or how she thought. Whilst the book did give some information and quotes, it wasnt anything particularly spectacular and I dont think that its anything that a fan wouldnt have already heard before. However, it is understandable as Kate is a very private person. I found the simple descriptions and meanings of Kates songs to be unnecessary in such simple terms and felt that the author only seemed to give his opinion when it was negative.
This is a decent book, but not if you already know the simple details of Kate Bushs life and music, however I do think that it would be worthwhile to read if you were new to her and you enjoy her music.

Kate Bush , byname of Catherine Bush , born July 30, , Bexleyheath, Kent , England , British singer and songwriter whose imaginative and inventive art rock —marked by theatrical sensuality, textural experimentation, and allusive subject matter—made her one of the most successful and influential female musicians in Britain in the late 20th century. Bush was the youngest child of an artistic family. Her father, who was a doctor, played the piano , and her mother, a nurse, had competed as a folk dancer in her native Ireland. As a child, Bush studied violin and piano and frequently joined her parents and older brothers in performing traditional English and Irish tunes at home. By age 14 she had begun writing her own musical compositions , and two years later a family friend introduced her to Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour , who helped her win a contract with EMI Records.
Her song Wuthering Heights, which was accompanied by an ethereal music video, remains her best-known track.
