Amy Winehouse Statue To Be Built In Camden?
Amy Winehouse may have a statue made in her memory, which would be built at the Camden Roundhouse, where the singer was last seen publicly. The Camden building is legendary for their music events and Amy was known to visit there frequently. Amy’s father spoke to The Camden New Journal about the plan...
Mitch said: "Amy was in love with Camden, but for us, it is a place that we associate with [both] heartbreak and love, because we loved Amy dearly."
"It will be bronze, lifesize, and on the first-floor balcony next to the Roundhouse bar. [We'd like to have] Amy leaning over the balcony and looking, and perhaps pointing, towards Camden Town from Chalk Farm Road.
"We wanted to have a bench in her memory outside her house in Camden Square, but there are so many hoops you have to jump through to do that."
Amy’s mum Jane said: "We're in very early discussions. It wouldn't go up until at least 2013, but for those who loved Amy's music and all those who knew her around Camden, it'll be something very special to remember her by."
A spokesperson for The Roundhouse said of the early plans: “We think it's important that Amy's contribution to music is recognised in Camden” adding that they “entirely in support” of the idea.
