Singer Kate Bush has shown off her doodling skills by designing the cover art for rock magazine Mojo's 20th birthday edition. The music bible celebrates the milestone next month (Nov13) and to celebrate, editors have solicited contributions from veteran stars including Brian Wilson, Jimmy Page, John Lydon, Steven Tyler, and Buddy Guy describing their memories of entering their third decade.
Wuthering Heights hitmaker Bush provided a white and grey sketch in a note of congratulations to the publication's bosses - and they have used the image for the cover of next month's edition.
The doodle features four balloons spelling out 'Mojo', with the handwritten message: "Glad to see you've still got your Mojo after 20 years. With love, Kate."
Punk icon John Lydon was unsurprised when legendary British TV presenter Sir Jimmy Savile was unmasked as a paedophile, because the rocker caused a storm by branding him "seedy" 35 years ago. BBC bosses were rocked last year (12) when long-running rumours about Savile's conduct while working at the corporation were made public following his death in 2011, and hundreds of victims have since come forward.
An official inquiry was launched, and in January (13), it was announced investigators had concluded Savile raped at least 30 children and abused 450 victims over a 54-year period.
However, news of Savile's disgrace came as no surprise to former Sex Pistols frontman Lydon as he had described the TV presenter's "seediness" in a BBC radio interview in 1978, but the comment was not broadcast.
He tells Mojo magazine, "That's how I am, I have my finger on the pulse. It caused trouble at the time."
