Personalities | Amy Winehouse | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocals, 1983–2011)

Winehouse’s distinctive brand of white soul and R&B rocketed her to fame in 2006 with breakthrough second album Back To Black. Public interest in the beehive-hairstyled Winehouse was fuelled just as much by her hedonistic lifestyle as her sultry vocals, but her success, both commercially and critically, was undeniable. The Mark Ronson-produced album won five Grammy awards, and songs like ‘Rehab’ have become part of popular culture, but her much-publicized addictive personality eventually proved her undoing.
