Amy winehouse dating paul dating like a bitch
Frustratingly it’s not a call you can ever make it must be received. Carl Barrat told me that “Winehouse” (which I usually called her and got a kick out of cos it’s kind of funny to call a girl by her surname) was a jazz singer, which struck me as bizarrely anomalous in that crowd.To me with my limited musical knowledge this information placed Amy beyond an invisible boundary of relevance; “Jazz singer? I chatted to her anyway though, she was after all, a girl, and she was sweet and peculiar but most of all vulnerable.It's really different, artist to artist." The DJ-turned-musician gave Winehouse's biggest album, Back to Black, its critically-acclaimed Motown-style backing as co-producer.He also used the 27-year-old to sing Valerie, the biggest hit on his own covers album Version, which won him a Brit Award for Best Male Artist in 2008.
But all appeared to be forgotten when the singer joined Ronson's band on stage at a London club in July.I was myself at that time barely out of rehab and was thirstily seeking less complicated women so I barely reflected on the now glaringly obvious fact that Winehouse and I shared an affliction, the disease of addiction.All addicts, regardless of the substance or their social status share a consistent and obvious symptom; they’re not quite present when you talk to them.They have about them the air of elsewhere, that they’re looking through you to somewhere else they’d rather be. The priority of any addict is to anaesthetise the pain of living to ease the passage of the day with some purchased relief.From time to time I’d bump into Amy she had good banter so we could chat a bit and have a laugh, she was “a character” but that world was riddled with half cut, doped up chancers, I was one of them, even in early recovery I was kept afloat only by clinging to the bodies of strangers so Winehouse, but for her gentle quirks didn’t especially register.
