Iron Maiden: Kate Bush

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, November 1989

Although signed at the tender age of 18, Kate Bush stoutly refused to be "the record company's daughter". She's quietly become her own manager, producer, publisher and video director, retreating to the strife-free sanctuary of a home studio to agonise over her complex recordings and cautiously contemplate trips to the outside world. Phil Sutcliffe encounters "the shyest megalomaniac you're ever likely to meet".
