“I’m not a girl trying to be a star or trying to be anything besides a musician. I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I’d probably go mad.”
Ah, yes, irony and hindsight, both on display on this interesting trailer to the summer release of the first big time Amy Winehouse documentary. Of course, when your biggest hit is “Rehab” and you die from an overdose, irony and hindsight comes with the territory, right?
I had a ticket to see AMy at Irving Plaza and blew it off with a terrible hangover. Apparently, Amy was drunk that night. We all go to hell in are own time and Amy hurried it up and more is the pity. Christgau once wrote, it is always John and never Paul and that seems so true when it comes to Amy, she was a John, an Alpha female (if you see what I mean), just a huge huge star, a huge singer, great songwriter. Of course we lost her, what did you expect?
The coming attractions is beautifully put together, even as it can strop winking in a way, can’t stop promising you the end as it tells you about the beginning. There is no other way we can do it, but a young Amy at the start of this story is a sad sad thing, she looks adorable and you can’t see her clearly enough through her future images and that voices that seems touched by pain.
