A detailed biography that pays tribute to the award-winning singer whose turbulent life and untimely death have captivated the world

An indisputable musical icon and controversial celebrity figure, Amy Winehouse's unique blend of jazz, pop, and soul singing and songwriting brought her a host of awards—including two prestigious Ivor Novellos and five Grammys—as well as an army of committed fans who adored her rich voice and painfully honest lyrics. Never far from the headlines, stories about her tumultuous personal life and controversial drug abuse made her a daily fixture in the tabloids and a fascination of celebrity magazines, yet she also held the respect of many serious musicians. This biography traces the turbulent life of the tattooed wonder from her childhood pranks and stage school through early music and the global legend she will be remembered as.
