How morbidly sweet.
Amy Winehouse’s father is looking to commemorate his famous daughter in statue form, to be placed somewhere in her beloved Camden Town.
Mitch Winehouse is currently in talks with the Chalk Farm performing arts venue The Roundhouse - the site of Amy’s last concert before her tragic death - about housing her bronzed doppleganger.
Mr. Winehouse recently expressed:
“It will be bronze, lifesize, and on the first-floor balcony next to the Roundhouse bar… What we’d like to have is Amy leaning over the balcony and looking, and perhaps pointing, towards Camden Town from Chalk Farm Road.”
If funding is secured, the statue could be up as soon as 2013.
Amy loved and lived in London’s trendy Camden neighborhood, and her daddums wanted to represent that love by the strategic placement of her memorial totem.
We only hope the statue is VERY tastefully constructed… bronze beings can easly look garish and comical!
