Russell Brand Remembers Amy Winehouse

Russell Brand has penned a tribute to his late friend, Amy Winehouse, who died at the age of 27 on Saturday (July 23).

Here’s a bit of what Russell had to share about Amy:

  • “I’ve known Amy Winehouse for years. When I first met her around Camden she was just some twit in a pink satin jacket shuffling round bars with mutual friends, most of whom were in cool Indie bands or peripheral Camden figures Withnail-ing their way through life on impotent charisma.”
  • “To me, with my limited musical knowledge this information placed Amy beyond an invisible boundary of relevance; ‘Jazz singer? She must be some kind of eccentric,’ I thought. I chatted to her anyway though, she was after all, a girl, and she was sweet and peculiar but most of all vulnerable.”
  • “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.”
  • “Now Amy Winehouse is dead, like many others whose unnecessary deaths have been retrospectively romanticized at 27 years old. Whether this tragedy was preventable or not is now irrelevant. It is not preventable today. We have lost a beautiful and talented woman to this disease.”
  • Russell‘s site is currently experiencing a huge surge of traffic, so if you can’t read the entire article at RussellBrand.tv, it’s also available through Us Weekly.
