I didn't particularly like Amy's music but I had an empathy for this famous but unhappy girl.

In Haight, the Hippie area of San Francisco in the 1970's, we found this impropmtu memorial to her on the main street. Although the Hippie's, as they were, have gone the area is still full of music and colourful people, doing their own individual thing!

Thanks for looking
Maggie

She is still revered, nominated for a posthumous award in the music world. She had talent, a rare one. Just one of many shrines.

Good PJ. Human life and death as part of the much more important matter of mass media business...

Her music wasn't my cup of tea by any stretch of the imagination but her troubled life and lifestyle made sad headlines for so long: so RIP, Amy.

I can only echo what Ronnie, has just said, and was indeed a very sad case, I hate drugs and pushers, lost friends due to them, never felt the need to try them either, good photo though, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

She certainly learned everything about bad habits and how to ruin your own life. She was so talented and skilful in music and the trashing of her own life.

She can only be happier where ever she is now because she sure as hell wasn't happy here.

Haight-Ashbury - brings back memories of my early days in the US.

I have empathy with all the entertainers, actors who do not have the strength to deal with the enormity of fame.

I did like Amy's gritty music, when I saw this, I heard the song "Me and Mr Jones" in my head, and I went off to YouTube to listen to it.

Maggie, Love this image, I really loved Amy's music and it was sad that she could not get her life together, thank you for this shot.

Hi Maggie, Good to meet you & Ron too. Please excuse any typos but I've got a tear in my eye having looked @ this.Well seen & well cropped. We know it's in the street but the the bit of car, ironicly Japanees in America, confirms this. For me Amy was the 21st c. Billi Holiday. They could only write songs like Back to Black & Strnge Fruit if they were in a dark place. Look foward to seeing you both @ CPS in May. Best of light, Si.
