If Amy Winehouse was a car, and life was a highway, her biggest mistake was never applying the brakes. Yet why and how did the song ‘Rehab’ stop being a multi-million selling work of genius and start becoming the soundtrack to a tragically short life?
Packed with exclusive interviews and previously untold stories, as well as expert psychological insights, this biography gets behind the newspaper headlines to answer that question, entering the real world of a talented yet troubled musical legend. From a suicide attempt by overdose at the tender age of 10, and a teenage arrest for indecent exposure, to an account of what really happened at her final show in Serbia by someone who was on the same stage with her, this book is full of unique revelations.
The book also reveals the real story of her notorious love affair with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, complete with suicide threats and self-harm sessions, which at times seemed more addictive than any drug.
