Amy Winehouse died nearly four years ago, and it’s still pretty hard to believe. I was a massive fan and was rooting for her all the way to the end, but it seemed her demons were just too big for her to beat (and I still think it’s all Blake’s fault). She was an incredible talent, one that was gone far, far before her time, and she was a massive loss to the music world. No one spoke for our generation the way Amy did – so frank, so unfiltered, so emotive. I really miss her a lot.
Director Asif Kapadia has now made a documentary, aptly titled Amy, which followed her life both before and during her fame, and really shows so much love and care for the subject at hand. The movie isn’t due out until July, but we’ve got the first trailer, and it’s really sad:
Sigh. Now I need to go listen to Frank.
