^I agree, Rocke. Don't understand the logic at all in big stadium arena bookings. I always thought mgt. should start up again slow, in low-key, smaller venues. Let her dip her toes in the water, not toss her in the deep end. Sink or swim.

Ah well, what the hell do I know?

Too soon, indeed!

It's too much, too soon. Just let her do more intimate bookings to work out the kinks. I love her spunk and style, don't get me wrong. I just think she's being pressured to perform. This is going to probably upset some, but I'm seeing shades of Edith Piaf.......

Sigh... this doesn't make me too hopefull.
And I go back to... I go back to us.


Bruised, battered and desparate for a fag she may be, but Amy is our 21st Century Piaf: flawed yet fabulous, tormented yet towering. Think of her this way and hope that the still remarkably young woman under the eyeliner thinks that way too. - Jude Rogers, The Word

She is determined to go down in history as a world-class performer, not someone who ruined a spectacular talent through drugs.


When I read that line, I said to myself, I hope it's not too late. Still hoping. The video didn't really back up my hopes, but it was short, so I'm still giving her the benefit of the doubt. I guess we're going to know the truth pretty soon though with the Brazil and Dubai concerts.

I hope so too...
I don't like what I'm seeing to be honest, but i'll always say to myself it's never too late, that she can actually make it, be succesful again (and happy while being at it). I'd love her to do small venues, if performing is what she rly wants to do. if not.. i dunno.

Amy comes on stage like she just walked into a big cocktail party, doesn't know anyone, so she moves over to talk to the band.
Hello!
I don't think Amy could put two good shows back to back. She has that not so rare genius personality and a lot of her peers are pretty fucked up.
At least she's off drugs. Let her meander around stage tipsy and sing when she remembers.
Keith lives!

You know what's really sad and maddening.. what you saw there was a MILLION pound gig. A MILLION pound gig. Didn't really show, did it?

i dunno what to think about the footage...a lot of russian reports say that the crowd loved her..maybe the opening was piss poor and then she warmed up??? I am really nervous that smoking crack/heroin/meth/etc has really fucked her lungs up. a lot of her singing lately seems a lot different and out of range. could it truly be that she destroyed her voice? i mean bulimia doesn't help vocals either...she was really damaging the asset that set her apart from other singers...i am scared for the shows coming up! :(
