I was in Ponty’s Big Weekend when I head about the death of Amy Winehouse. She was definitely a person who polarized opinion whether that’s about her personal life or music. She’s the newest member of the 27 Club – the list of musicians who died when they were 27.
The list includes, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain. If you want to learn more of this list, check out the Wikipedia entry
This is only a short blog just for me to put in a few class Winehouse musical moments. Not wanting to offend or upset, I start with this:
Then one of her amazing live pieces:
And her last live performance
The main thing with this last performance is that Dionne Bromfield also performed this song at Ponty’s Big Weekend – Just shortly after the news started to spread on twitter – quite amazing if you ask me.
And to finish…. one of the Winehouse’s finest moments with Mark Ronson…Valerie (even though she’s not in the video)
