Kate Bush’s First Love Became Her First Song
Kate Bush, an English songwriter, wrote ‘’The Man with the Child in His Eyes,’’ at age 16, which became a top- chart single. The song was released in 1978, three years after she wrote it. Later in 2010, it was revealed that the song actually described her first boyfriend, Steve Blacknell.
Blacknell revealed his side of the story in an interview with The Daily Mail. He said, “She had become my first true love by the spring of 1975. I’ll never forget her. I went round to her house, and she led me to a room where a piano stood. When I heard it, I realized right there that I had fallen in love with a genius.’’
