Adele was surpost to perform with George Michael for a rousing tribute concert way back in the day for Amy Winehouse, but it never happened because the Rolling in the Deep singer was too grief-stricken!!!
George recently spoke to a British radio station about the missed opportunity:.
“We communicated by email… and initially what I wanted was for us to sing Love Is A Losing Game by Amy Winehouse at the Elizabeth Taylor tribute I did… She was basically telling me she couldn’t even… she tried to put one of [Winehouse's] songs in her own set and she couldn’t even get through it. They’re obviously musical goddesses but I think the tragedy would have been too much for her.”
George also revealed that he really hopes to cut a track or two with Adele after she gives birth.
Mitch Winehouse the father of Amy Winehouse has written a memoir about Amy called Amy, My Daughter, and how he could never really get into Back In Black because of everything she was singing about.
It was about her ex, Fielder-Civil, whom Mitch blames for his daughter’s descent into alcohol and drugs.
Here’s what he said:
“Long before Amy was an addict, no one could tell her what to do. Once she became an addict, her stubbornness just got worse. There were times when she wanted to be clean, but the times when she didn’t outnumbered them.”
Its so sad its nearly coming up a year since she sadly passed away. We still cant believe that shes no longer with us she was such a great talent.
Amy Winehouse’s father is looking to making a statue of his famous daughter in her home town of Camden in London.
Mitch Winehouse is currently in talks with the Chalk Farm performing arts venue The Roundhouse – the site of Amy’s last concert before her tragic death – about housing her bronzed doppleganger.
Mr. Winehouse recently expressed:
“It will be bronze, lifesize, and on the first-floor balcony next to the Roundhouse bar… What we’d like to have is Amy leaning over the balcony and looking, and perhaps pointing, towards Camden Town from Chalk Farm Road.”
If the fund is secured, the statue could be up as soon as 2013.
This would be so lovely all her fans could have photos with it to remember this amazing singer!
Amy loved and lived in London’s trendy Camden neighborhood, and her daddums wanted to represent that love by the strategic placement of her memorial totem.
Musical producer Mark Ronson ceased collaborations with Beth Ditto fronted band Gossip after hearing aboutAmy Winehouse’s death!
He was in the studio with the group just as the news broke about Amy Winehouse’s death!
Mark recently said:
“It was really strange. It was almost like a turning point. When I found out that Amy passed I was in disbelief. I walked out of the session and I never fully came back…I think the main thing, the chemistry of what we had going on with the Gossip album wasn’t really amazing and being reminded about how good it is when it’s good, maybe I thought I was forcing something.”
Mark was a very good friend and helped produce Amy’s career-defining Back To Black album, and what he touches tends to turn to musical gold…
We really hope that do make some music that would be great.
