Seven years ago today, on the 23rd July 2011, I was sitting in a meeting in Maidenhead, Berkshire with my friend Mike, when my mobile phone rang. It was my friend Jon on the phone. He just said to me "Amy is dead". I was stunned.. I found it hard to take in. Although a part of me wasn't surprised. What a loss! What a tragedy! In hindsight, this was a long time coming. At the time, when I heard this awful news, I remember being angry as well. I knew that there were certain people who had been leading Amy down the wrong path. Anyway, enough of that for now. She was such a talented, lovely person and missed so much by so many people. I worked quite a lot with Amy (studio & Live) between 2004 and 2011. Here is one shot of her at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday concert at Hyde Park, London in 2008. The legendary singer, Paul Rodgers is bottom right on this photo. I seem to remember that the next day I was down at Glastonbury with Amy again. She was performing on Pyramid Stage on the Sunday..
