According to Amy's official page the 'BRITS' have confirmed that this is the first ever posthumous BRIT nomination.
Amy’s Father, Mitch Winehouse said, ““The Winehouse family are delighted with this wonderful nomination for Amy. It proves that her music still has an enormous effect on the public now and for the generations to come. We are proud that her legacy will live on forever through her incredible songs and performances and the many, many young people that are being helped through the Amy Winehouse Foundation.”
It's hard to believe (at least for me) that today marks one year since Amy left us.
Seems like it was yesterday when it appeared the announcement of his tragic death in the news, putting a sad and early end to a life filled with career triumphs and personal tragedy.
Amy left behind a musical legacy never to be forgotten with two albums in life (Frank and Back to Black) and a third posthumous realise (Lioness: Hidden Treasures) which debuted at No.1 on the music charts in its first week. Many will say it was little, but the truth is that she accomplished what many...
When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it’s too late, she’s gone.
Frustratingly it’s not a call you can ever make it must be received. It is impossible to intervene.
Well sometime I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things,what you're doing
And in my head I pain a picture
Cos since I've come around
Well my6 body's bean a mess
And I missed your ginger hair
And the way you like me dress
Won't you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don't you come on over Valerie?
He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old save bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far remove from all that we went through
And I tried a trubled track
My odds are stracked
I'll go back to black
We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...
Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt
You say 'what did you do with him today?'
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray
'Cause you're my fella,my guy
Hand me you're stella and fly
By the time I'm out the door
You tear me down like Roger Moore
I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble
You know that I'm no good
They tried to make me go to rehab but I say 'no,no,no'
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know,know,know
I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go,go,go
I'd rather be at home with ray
I ain't got seventy days
'Cause there's nothing
That I can't learn from Mr Hathaway
I didn't get a lot in class
But I know it don't come in a chort glass
They tried to make me go to rehab but I said no,no,no
In many years past, I was taken aback and astounded at the incredulous decision to give Kim Carnes the top award for 'Betty Davis Eyes' over the award winning (how ironic) Winelight album featured song, 'Just the Two of Us'. I have never been so mad as that example of poor taste in award giving. So, it seems, do many people share my emotion of yesterday with their criticism of Winehouse's selection today. Things have a way of evening out over the years as I am quite happy for Amy. There is no question in my mind that she has demonstrated a superb and unique talent as a singer (that...
Amy Winehouse's estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil has apparently reached the point in his long climb up the 12 steps where he's making a list of the people he's harmed. At the top of that fearless moral inventory: His self-admitted mess of a missus, whom he says he turned into a drug-ravaged disaster zone.
"I dragged Amy into it and without me there is no doubt that she would never have gone down that road. I ruined something beautiful," the currently rehabbing jailbird tearfully but indiscreetly tells Britain's News of the World (listen to audio of the interview here). "Now...
