As well as being asked to post something about The Damned, I had a request for a little something about Kate Bush, specifically around her song Hammer Horror. Unfortunately, as closely tied to the genre as Hammer were, the song does not mention vampires.
But, on a search around the net, I came across a transcript of an interview. It seems that the delectable Ms Bush was offered a film role, as a vampire. The interview, from 1979, says:
“I have had film offers--like, there's been a couple of vampire films, and a rock musical. That's an obvious one because I'm a singer. But I wouldn't have thought I was a vampire!”
Now, to me, that has to rate as one of the great missed opportunities of the vampire movie genre. Still, it gave me an excuse to post a picture of Kate.
