from Linda Ronstadt:

So I started listening to Amy Winehouse on YouTube and now I’m like an Amy Winehouse fanatic!”

Wait, have you seen the Amy Winehouse/Linda Ronstadt mashup on YouTube of “You Know I’m No Good”/”You’re No Good?”
Yes! It makes no sense musically, but it’s interesting, and I thought it was funny. I’m just completely flattered to be in anything with Amy Winehouse. If I believed in reincarnation, I would firmly believe that Amy Winehouse is the reincarnation of Maria Callas. Maria Callas is such the ‘grand lady,’ and Amy is such a guttersnipe, and they both are so demonically talented.

Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

OMG Linda Ronstadt accoldes for Amy, she is so classy. For you youngsters, Linda was the queen of 70's pop, NOONE could touch her. That means alot to me to hear Linda's praise for Amy.

Osbourne writes: "I met Amy at the Brit Awards in 2007. She said, 'Alright, Kel. You've got great t*ts.' I instantly loved her. The Amy I'm so privileged to know is not the Amy in the media. She gives the best advice. All talented people have troubles because they can't come to terms with it. Deep down, all Amy wants to do is have a family, settle down and be left alone. That girl is not stupid."

on Rock in Rio Lisbon (May the 30th 2008)

I think this comment is really cool, it resumes how i felt that day. I was there, and as i was watching Amy performance and thinking "No! What is wrong with her?" I had mixed feelings towards her performance. But don't know why, something about her pulled me in and kept me there. After the performance, without noticing it, Amy had captivated everyone's hearts, and made lots and lots of dedicated fans...i'm one of them for sure.

Memorable!

35 minutes of delay, no voice, didn’t sing all the songs, right hand injured, one cut on the left wrist, forgot some of the lyrics, almost fell down on stage, was completely doped and barely could stand up on her legs (literally). She admitted that she should’ve cancelled for not being at her best and also cried. Still, she tried to appear more animated while singing “Rehab”, “Me and Mr. Jones " and “Valerie”. That was the way Amy Winehouse appeared in public.

Some were there just to watch all the polemic that surrounds this great artist, like this woman who was by my side saying that the only thing her boyfriend knew about Amy was the “no, no, no” from Rehab. Also some wanted her to fail the gig, so they could tell their friends she was too wasted to perform. And of course others vibrated and cried out her name from the beginning until the end. I confess, initially I was perplex with what I was watching, and started to think about the money I spent on the ticket: “I shouldn’t have spent the 53 euros for this! ”. I went to Rock in Rio just because of her, as I always admitted, I know and love Amy’s stuff for a while now. So…little time passed and the disillusion gave place to satisfaction. I got to the front and was able to see her closely. But I didn’t see “Mrs. Amy Winehouse ", as it was announced at her entrance on stage, but I saw “Amy”, that human being that displays its weaknesses to the fans and that demonstrates to be so human just like any other human being attending the show yesterday. It was because of that I became almost delirious, not of happiness, but because I was able too see, not an artist who thinks is God, who is plasticized and surrounded by an aura of perfection which doesn’t correspond to reality, but the artist who is so imperfect like every other person and whose resistance on stage was epic! It was a survival example! C’mon don’t fuck with me: Amy Winehouse gave a memorable gig! We already have enough proof she has great talent. Yesterday, she did not sing as I would want her to, but she sure sent us a great message while on stage…give your best at everything you do, use all your strength, push yourself to the limit (in a good way)! I adored, but now that I already know “Amy”, I’m waiting for the day I’ll meet the “Mrs. Amy Winehouse ".

For anyone who may have missed 13-yr-old Amy's essay about herself & her ambitions:

All my life I have been loud, to the point of being told to shut up. The only reason I have had to be this loud is because you have to scream to be heard in my family.
My family? Yes, you read it right. My Mum's side is perfectly fine, my Dad's family are the singing, dancing, all-nutty musical extravaganza.
I've been told I was gifted with a lovely voice and I guess my Dad's to blame for that.
Although unlike my Dad, and his background and ancestors, I want to do something with the talents I've been 'blessed' with.
My Dad is content to sing loudly in his office and sell windows. My mother, however, is a chemist. She is quiet, reserved.
I would say that my school life and school reports are filled with 'could do betters' and 'does not work to her full potential'.
I want to go somewhere where I am stretched right to my limits and perhaps even beyond.
To sing in lessons without being told to shut up (provided they are singing lessons).
But mostly I have this dream to be very famous. To work on stage. It's a lifelong ambition.
I want people to hear my voice and just . . . forget their troubles for five minutes.
I want to be remembered for being an actress, a singer, for sellout concerts and sellout West End and Broadway shows.
For being just . . . me.

She's actually achieved all the ambitions she described in that essay except for being an actress and doing West End and Broadway shows. And she did it in a little more than 10 years. Pretty impressive.

I could never see Amy as an actress because she is so much more interesting just being herself.

Art is the expression of emotion through creative outlet.
If that's not what Amy does, I don't know what is.
Not saying you have to like her music, but there's little doubt that it's art.

How can a voice transmit so much? Well, she is not only sound, she is Amy.

When Mr. Rochester tells Jane (Eyre): "Jane, you are beautiful." Jane replies: "I am not beautiful, I am Jane."
Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

A few words about Amy from a BBC radio interview with Kelly Osbourne.

Kelly empathises with her close friend Amy Winehouse who has also battled drug and alcohol problems.

The 24-year-old star said: “I have known Amy for a really long time. Because of what has happened to me [drug addiction] it is easier for me to see through the b.s.

“Amy is a really special and talented person. It is hard to be a woman in this industry.”

A review of B2B on Amazon:

Not Since Barbra Streisand's First Album Have I Felt Like This!!!, June 8, 2007
By Anna V. Carroll - See all my reviews


Celebrating my 65th birthday this year, I thought I had seen and heard it all. Well, obviously not. Kept seeing photos in the NY newspapers of a tiny, black-haired Brit named Amy Winehouse. Who?!! Someone said; Oh, she's a singer. Yeah, right. Then I happened to flip the channel to a night club gig she did in Manhattan and fell off my chair! Her voice pinned me against the wall! WHO IS THIS INCREDIBLE TALENT!? Immediately found her CD, and have totally played a hole in it. Rehab, and Back to Black transport me back to the early 60s when a young, tiny, incredibly brilliant Barbra Streisand came on the scene. Remember those early albums? Remember the feeling you had when you first heard her sing? Thought I could never have that experience again. Barbra, Aretha, Mahalia, Otis. One of a kind. Amy Winehouse is one of a kind.

She is the lighthouse beacon in a foggy sea. She is an astounding talent. I am thrilled to have found her. Wish I could adopt her! BUY ALL OF HER CD'S. NOW!
