It's being reported that attempts are being made to have a statue of Amy Winehouse at London music venue The Roundhouse. Do you think she made enough of a musical contribution to merit this? Or are your memories of her more dominated by her drink and drugs-fuelled lifestyle - ie. she was the very opposite of a good example to others - or do we simply put that down to an illness? One report I read states "The star's father Mitch, mother Janis and stepmother Jane hope bosses at the concert hall will allow the life-size sculpture to stand on the first-floor balcony next to the building's bar. They are adamant Winehouse, who died from alcohol poisoning last July, would appreciate a tribute at the venue as it is close to where she lived after shooting to fame." I can't help think this might be referring to the bar rather than her home nearby

Don't see why not - different scale admittedly, but people flock to Graceland to pay tribute to Elvis - another great star felled by drug and alcohol abuse.

There are also statues of Janis Joplin in Port Arthur and Jimi Hendrix in Capitol Hill (Seattle).

I suppose people like to celebrate an artist's life, rather than they way they died...
