The medical people determined finally that Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning, or as the article in the paper said, "She drank herself to death."
Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse
Right after I read that, I heard an interview on NPR with Tony Bennett. He is grieving her loss. They sang together for his recent duet record. He said he's been waiting since The Beatles' invasion for someone to carry on the legacy of Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, and the other phenomenonal American women singers. Amy was the one, he said. She had it.
He's in his 80s. She was 27. I could hear the pain in his voice.
