Me & Mr. Jones Will Miss You

Two months after Back to Black came out in 2007, Valerie and I drove from Austin to the Grand Canyon to Los Angeles and blared Amy Winehouse the entire time. Earlier today, we called each other at the very same moment to see if the other had heard about her passing.  It’s a tremendous loss and I find myself increasingly annoyed with people’s rude and insensitive Facebook comments regarding her addictions, rehab, etc.  She may have suffered from her own personal demons, but she put forth fantastic, fantastic music that should – and does – speak for itself.

RIP
