Remembering Amy Winehouse Some artists exist for a short time but their impact last forever, their works speak for them and the memories they’ve created while they are alive never fade as many generations that are not born yet will get to hear about them and study their works, Amy Winehouse is one of such artists, her time on earth will never be forgotten and won’t fade away from our memories anytime soon.

Remembering Amy Winehouse It’s six years this month that she’s left earth to the great beyond and we still miss her and her works, her beautiful voice. This month we’ll be celebrating her the best way we can, we love her but guess heaven wants her to come shut down shows and create beautiful sounds over there

Just as her best music drew on sampling assembling sonic licks and stylistic fragments borrowed from Motown, Stax, punk and early hip-hop her personal style was also a knowing collage. There was a certain moment in the ’90s when, if you were headed downtown and turned left, every girl looked like Bettie Page. But they did not do what Winehouse did, mixing Bettie Page with Brigitte Bardot and adding that little bit of Ronnie Spector. – Former Rolling Stone editor Joe Levy,
