Sources are reporting that Amy Winehouse is looking into
joining a sober group forming a super group with some rather talented people.
Wino is supposedly in talks with producer Raphael Saadiq and The Roots drummer ?uestlove, but there are some obstacles stopping the project from getting off the ground.
Nothing major, just the fact that Wino has been denied entry into the US since her marijuana possession arrest in 2007! (Has it been that long? Time flies!)
But ?uestlove, real name Ahmir Thompson, has high hopes that the group will come together. He told sources:
"The group will definitely happen. It's just the closest she can come to the States is Jamaica. I'm off to France soon so I'll see if she's up for discussing it over dinner. We're Skype-ing the shit out of each other."
Sounds, um, promising?
We wish you a lot of luck, ?uestlove! You're soooo going to need it.
Wino's not exactly what anyone in the music industry calls reliable or stable … or conscious.
