    10 years since this extremely talented lady left the world. I'm thankful that my wife insisted all those years ago to go and see her in concert. Rest well young lady.

    About 3 minutes in. Not easy to upstage Adele. But wow!

    Demons torture the talented and untalented alike.

    I really don't follow "pop" music but the first time I heard Amy sing it was one of those rare moments when I could honestly say the hoopla was all true.

    That documentary about her was really good. I think it was called “Amy.” I knew very little about her, but I was glad to have seen that movie. It was very sympathetic. Seems like she was very mistreated by those closest to her.

    I thought she was amazing but a sad story.

    It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since. I suddenly feel, well, 10 years older.

    27 years old is not a good age for musicians (Amy, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Robert Johnson)

    R.I.P. Amy

    So, I went to a Grammy's party 2 years ago. At the Clive Davis Theater we went for a private concert. But they had this wonderful exhibit for Amy. It was heartfelt.

    She was something. I get teary eyed listening to some of her songs.

    The only reason I know who she is at all is because she died.

    "Love is a losing game", always works for me. For some apparent reason I focus on my late baby girl Laure when I hear it, makes me well up - lots....

    I can't say I was honestly a fan, but I thought that she was a talent that died way too young. I saw the documentary Amy & have developed a liking to her vox. Sadly, she wasn't around long enough to be fully appreciated. She should have had a much longer career.

    R.I.P. :cry:

    I was staying at a posh flat in camden, maybe only 100 yards away, that fatefull night, I'm not a fan, but it's sad to see someone go when they've got lots more to give. ( Disclaimer - like many things, it was nothing to do with me, your Honour, I just happened to be in the area, ... again! ) o_O
