THE death of Amy Winehouse 10 years ago today affected me differently from most celebrity deaths.
For example, when Tom Petty, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Lemmy, Neil Peart etc died, I spent the next week listening incessantly to their music.
But when Amy died at the age of 27, I found it difficult to listen to either of her albums for a long time.
In fact, it’s only in the last year that I’ve been able to listen to Back to Black all the way through since before she died.
As sad as the deaths of the other musicians…
