R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

Amy WinehouseIt was a sad day in the music world yesterday, when Amy Winehouse joined heroes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Brian Jones and Jim Morrison in the Forever 27 club.

Everyone knows how talented Amy was, and whilst her drug problems were an issue I've also heard nice things about her as a person. It's sad to lose a talent, but to lose a kind individual at such a young age is a tragedy, regardless of how it happened.

We dedicated 'Valerie' to Amy last night at our gig at the Strand Hotel in Bude, and having been a huge fan of 'Frank' since it was released in 2003 I'm tempted to persuade the rest of the band to have a bash at one or two of her stunning jazzy numbers for future gigs. A nice tribute to a great talent, in my opinion.

R.I.P. Amy.
