I haven’t been posting for a while now, but sometimes it takes a tragedy of this magnitude to cause shockwaves across the musical globe. I’ve written numerous blog posts about my respect for Amy, whom I consider my muse, and I truly regret that a talented, shining light of her calibre has been extinguished.
When we were all introduced to her, we got exactly what we saw - a raw, unbridled talent, and a life entangled in substance abuse. Fame never helped her either, sending her to a darker place. I wholly regret that I was never able to see her live, and I’m saddened that she wasn’t there to finish her third album. No doubt the album will surface, but it’s not the same without her at the helm. Hopefully, they’ll pull Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson into the studio to do her unfinished work justice.
This is a reminder to everyone out there to embrace life, because life can pull out all sorts of surprises. Don’t waste another moment merely existing, don’t indulge in idle pleasures, don’t spend another moment regretting what could have been - live life to the fullest.
Amy’s music and legacy will live on in all of her fans and listeners. May her lost soul finally find peace.
