Valerie - Amy Winehouse:

Hubo un momento durante el fin de semana en el que realmente sentí tristeza por el fallecimiento de Amy Winehouse. He encontrado dos breves semblanzas sobre ella que me llamaron la atención.

Una de estas notas es de Russell Band en la cual, de una forma muy conmovedora, abre su testimonio de cómo conoció a Amy en sus inicios como cantante de la siguiente forma:

When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it’s too late, she’s gone.

En el London Review of Books, Lidija Haas escribió:

A gift to gossip writers, Winehouse was nonetheless famous for actually being good at something. She was retro even in her celebrity; one of the most exposed in a culture of unprecedented over-exposure, she still appeared mysterious, as if she was disguised as herself.
